NItin Khanna Makes the Most of Hidden Opportunities

NItin Khanna Makes the Most of Hidden Opportunities

Nitin Khanna was born in the northern province of Himachal Pradesh, India, against the high backdrop of the Himalyas. Part of an entrepreneurial family, he spent hist formative years building a business experience base in such enterprises as machine parts and cement production. His early education was at The Lawrence School, one of the highest-ranked in the country, which made a historical, seven-student team expedition to Mt. Everest.

Nitin Khanna attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana and received a master’s in industrial engineering. He began his career at International Paper, where he developed managerial skills. Upon observing the coming tech economy, he worked at Oracle in the mid-90s, after which he launched the successful Saber Software with his brother Karan, which developed election modernization software.

Saber went on to become the principle provider of government software, with $300 million in annual revenue and 1,500 employees. Khanna sold sold Saber to EDS in 2008, and HP later acquired it in 2009.

Based on this experience, Khanna became an investor and consultant on mergers and acquisitions, with his next company, MergerTech, for entrepreneurial businesses in his adopted city of Portland, Oregon.

Khanna found that early perception of demand was fundamental to entrepreneurialism, and with the legalization of cannabis in 2012, Khanna formed Cura Cannabis, now the largest cannabis business in the world.

Nitin Khanna believes in doing what you love, and that success relies not only on ideas but on execution and surrounding yourself with capable agents in the company’s mission.

To achieve this, Khanna works on the practice of planning and delegation, which allows more time to focus on business priorities as well as time for family.

His two key points for entrepreneurs are to know your true abilities and how they match your pursuits and to know how to be expedient in acquisition and termination, in order to similarly apply talent.

Having stepped down as CEO of Cura Cannabis, Khanna has engaged in producing film documentaries and sits on the boards of Freewire Broadband, TiE Oregon and Vendscreen.
