Co-founder Shazam


Dhiraj Mukherjee is a co-founder of Shazam, an iconic music recognition service.

Besides being involved in startup misadventures, Dhiraj has been a management consultant, internet strategist, charity worker, media executive, social media guru, and inventor. He is currently Head of Innovation for a bank.
