Ex-Microsoft VP emerges at stealthy Indix

In his last role at Microsoft, Sanjay Parthasarathy oversaw the Startup Business Accelerator program where the goal was to jumpstart new business ideas within the software giant. Now, Parthasarathy, who spent 19 years at Microsoft, is kicking around a startup of his own called Indix.

Not much is known about the startup at this point, and a rudimentary landing page indicates that it is just another site that “starts with IND and ends with IX.”

“Indix is a work in progress and will be shared with the world in due course. Until then we thank you for your support,” according to a blog post from Parthasarathy on the site. We’ve reached out to the executive to get more details on what he’s up to and we will update the post when we learn more.

According to a SEC filing, Indix recently raised $250,000 in debt financing. It also lists Malini Balakrishnan as an executive.

Parthasarathy, who left his corporate vice president post at Microsoft in 2009 after 19 years, is listed as CEO and founder of Indix. At the time of his retirement, PC World reported that Parthasarathy had planned to return to India.

Corporate records indicate that Indix is based in Bellevue, and his Twitter profile lists the MIT grad’s residences as Seattle and the Chennai, India.

He’s also an investor in Seattle area startups Buuteeq and Cumulux, as well as companies based in India such as DocSuggest and GaMa Entertainment.

    There’s something you don’t want on your resume.

    Congrats Sanjay for creating your company.   Have a great time growing it.

    Congratulations Sanjay on leaving the mother ship and striking out on your own.  You’ll never regret it.  How about picking another name though?  “Indix” is a little close to home for those of us over here at INRIX.  : )
