Vik is also Managing Director and founder of Technology Blue Software, a fast growth Indian software company offering​ consultancy and support to companies based in UK, USA, Europe, Middle East and Asia.

In addition he founded the PropTech mobile app Rentr, a comprehensive lettings app designed for landlords and tenants and CheckDocs, a simple tool to help landlords conduct ‘right-to-rent’ checks on prospective tenants. Vik runs all his business interests centrally in Leamington Spa.
