Neharika Mehta

Founder, Seashore Solutions LLC

Neharika Mehta, the CEO of Seashore Solutions LLC, is on a mission to help women advance their careers in the tech industry, and more specifically through entrepreneurship. She is passionate about her goals and the direction she has road mapped out for her agile company.

After spending 20 years working in the corporate world, Neha Mehta felt like she had not reached her professional purpose and true calling, and it was time to make a career change. Following her internal soulful pull to help women in a more direct and substantial way, Neha started her company Seashore Solutions.

Seashore specializes in custom software solutions, Enterprise Application Development, management consulting and placements providing client-centric solutions, implements changes and modernizes processes to solve every day business challenges.

“As an entrepreneur, I want to help inspire women to take the leap and follow their dreams, and I love how TiE Austin’s community helps us – women reach our goals through mentorship and camaraderie.”

In addition to being on the membership committee for TiE Austin to foster entrepreneurship in Central Texas, Neha is also a council member for the Small Business Majority, Washington DC, to empower America’s entrepreneurs. Her degrees in Management of Information Systems, Marketing and Finance, and previous employment with The World Bank, Sony Electronic, E*TRADE, Bank of NY Mellon and Dun & Bradstreet, creates a deep well of experience and knowledge for her to share with other women.

Realizing the lack of diversity in the tech industry, Neha co-founded Seashore Solutions in 2017 with a mission to empower women in the field of technology and give them a platform to succeed and inspire each other in their pursuits. She then joined TiE Austin in 2018 to take advantage of their mentorship program and massive network.

“I love the sense of belonging with TiE Austin’s Vive Les Femmes Entrepreneurs. This women’s group is a business community with people just like myself who have similar stories. We share our successes and discuss failures and uplift each other.”

In congruence to Neha’s intrinsic motivation of helping women in tech, she’s concentrating on launching her next project called Tech on Heels, as well as becoming more deeply ingrained in TiE Austin’s Vive Les Femmes Entrepreneurs. She also hoping Seashore will be able to provide solutions for Tesla when they settle down here in Austin.

“I would like all entrepreneurs to know that it’s ok to ask for favors and to reach out for help. TiE Austin’s global business community and mentorship networking programs have been there to help guide me and my company towards the next chapter, and I look forward to growing with this resourceful nonprofit.”

Neha was able to find her professional purpose and to form a company that centers around her passions. When she discusses the growth of her company and her future plans, her path becomes more defined. She is planning on developing a U.S. based team, preferably around Austin, and to increase Seashore’s productivity output. Neha has been a member of TiE Austin since 2018, and she is utilizing the organization to connect her to local organizations and mentors to help accelerate Seashore’s growth.

Sree Chintala

Co-Founder and CEO, Clocr Inc.

Sree is a serial entrepreneur with 25+ years of career and has an undying passion for innovation. He has launched several startups over the past 15 years and is now on a mission to provide peace of mind to customers around the world through Clocr.

The primary objective of Clocr is to eliminate uncertainty and remove the obstacles of cost, procrastination, and frustration in protecting and passing on a person’s digital assets. Clocr’s patent-pending security is the industry’s best defense against files, and this is the company’s biggest differentiator.

“The idea for Clocr came to us – my daughter and myself, shortly after the passing of my father when I was thrust into the role of ‘executor’ of my father’s will. I manage all my family’s finances and investments, which include cash investments, rental properties, land ownerships, retail investments, and more. I always worried about how my family would know where all the investments were and how they would take over if something were to happen to me. It was a bigger worry when my kids were younger, and I wasn’t comfortable sharing my financials with my extended family or friends. Clocr was born out of this necessity.”

Sree firmly believes that technology empowers society to creatively and effectively solve age old problems. Working with his daughter, Apoorva, who was then a junior in high school, was his inspiration on many fronts. Their vision is to help their customers effortlessly manage their digital assets and ensure that their digital portfolio is safe and accessible to their designated beneficiaries.

Sree has been a member of TiE Austin since the start of the chapter in the year 2000. TiE Austin is connecting Clocr Inc. to local organizations and mentors to help accelerate their B2C and B2B2C growth.

“One of the most lucrative sources for me today is TiE Austin. This organization is thriving in the Austin, TX metro area. TiE has a huge network of entrepreneurs, mentors, and resources, and also opens up opportunities to connect at national and international levels around the world,” says Sree. “It’s not about how many times you got knocked down. It’s about how many times you are able to get back up. Treat each venture as a learning opportunity. Have a mentor support system that can help you guide the way. And this is where TiE can help. TiE Austin can accelerate your success journey. Be respectful, courteous, and compassionate to others and their situations.”
