Our Team
Nimeyo is an enterprise knowledge management platform that supports collaboration and helps teams, regardless of job function, accomplish goals faster. The company evolved from a simple mission, vision, and goal: a need for a better way for teams large and small to share information.

After years in technical, people management, and business development roles, the company’s founding team recognized a common, detrimental pain point in today’s enterprise world. Even though our knowledge is our most important asset, we’re still struggling to achieve transparency and consistent flows of information. Determined to solve this pain point, the company’s founding team started Nimeyo. Read more about their stories below.
Durgam Vahia
Co-founder, CEO
As CEO of Nimeyo, Durgam is responsible for product development, customer acquisition, and sales. In the earliest days of his career at Sun Microsystems, Durgam developed complex software for UltraSPARC multi-processor system validation, particularly in the areas of cache coherency and memory ordering. He eventually went on to lead a geo-distributed engineering team and expanding SPARC eco-system beyond Sun. After Oracle‘s acquisition of Sun, Durgam led partnerships with Intel, Cisco, Dell and other system and storage vendors to build customer-focused program for Oracle’s Linux and Virtualization products. Throughout these roles, Durgam noticed an ever-present trend: poor collaboration and re-use of enterprise information causing countless hours of repetitive work by employees. Along with his co-founder, he set out to develop the perfect solution, and Nimeyo was born. Durgam holds an MS in Computer Engineering from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley.

He was PwrLite‘s product architect and principal inventor of techniques and algorithms for optimizing power for semiconductor devices. Prior to that, he was a Staff Engineer at Sun Microsystems, Inc. where he focused on validation of multiprocessor systems. He was among the principal authors of a novel software that coupled random test generation with a formal analysis. Chaiyasit was a co-recipient of Sun’s Chairman‘s Award for Innovation - Sun’s highest R&D award. Chaiyasit received a Ph.D. in EE from Stanford University and holds 8 US patents. He has been programming for over 25 years and was a silver medalist in the 1993 International Olympiad in Informatics.
