Co-Founder and Group CEO, Betterplace
Pravin Agarwala

Pravin Agarwala is the Co-founder & Group CEO of BetterPlace, Asia's largest SaaS platform for frontline workforce management. BetterPlace caters to the entire value chain of frontline workforce management from discovery, hiring, onboarding, background verification, vendor management, payroll to upskilling, staffing (gig & full time) solutions and benefits transfer (insurance and credit). Looking at the inadequate attention given to the blue & grey collar sector and the large demand and supply gap that has been left unaddressed, Pravin co-founded the company in 2015 with a mission to build a better world for the frontline workers in India. Today BetterPlace serves over 1500 enterprises across APAC, India and GCC regions. 


Before co-founding BetterPlace, Pravin was the Vice President and Global Head of Business for SAP Business ByDesign, a cloud ERP product. Through his professional endeavors, he has gathered 20+ years of experience in SaaS, Cloud Strategy, CRM and People Management. His love for finding solutions through tech has also placed him in a dual role of being an investor and an advisor in several tech-startups.


Pravin graduated from Assam engineering college, Guwahati in 1996 with a BE degree in Electronics and Telecommunication. He has also completed an Executive Management program in Innovation and Global Management from Indian Institute of Management, Bengaluru and an Executive Management program in Innovation from Indian School of Business.
