A violinist, trained in Western classical music, Sudipto debuted as a music composer in 2014, when he recreated Eastern European melodies of the 1940s for the War Musical Schweyk in the Second World War by Bertolt Brecht. An engineer by profession, Sudipto is a veteran in the Semiconductor Industry and an entrepreneur, having co-founded two successful startups. He is also a columnist and a speaker at TED events.
