Professionally, he has been in leadership roles at leading software/technology companies for over two decades. He has a graduate degree in computer science from Texas Tech University. He was born in Anantapur, India, and spent the early part of his life there. He is well aware of the challenges in the drought-prone rural areas in India and is passionate about applying technology to address them. He currently lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife and two children.

“I am honored and humbled to be a part of the VFF USA family. VFF USA’s vision of addressing inequalities in the society through education is something close to my heart. I look forward to the journey with VFF USA and focus on activities to help improve the lives of the marginalized, discriminated and vulnerable groups by empowering them through awareness campaigns and helping them develop appropriate skills for a sustainable livelihood,” said Prem Gangalakunta.
