ADS Inc. President Karan Rai recently sat down with Gina Lynch for her Tomorrow’s Tech Podcast.

Lynch regularly interviews area leaders to inform listeners about future trends in technology and how people can get involved in creating a better future.

Rai speaks in depth with Lynch about his career trajectory, the rise of ADS Inc., his decision to join the company, and the success that comes from building with a purpose.

“To see (ADS) evolve, to see what it has become, both from the outside and from the past five years being a part of it, it’s been a lot of fun, and I think we’re just getting started,” he tells Lynch.

He also talks about his inspiring involvement with 757Angels, a network of more than 100 Hampton Roads business and community leaders who provide advice, mentorship and investment capital for select start-ups and early-stage companies.

“It’s been super fun,” he tells Lynch, pointing to the added benefit that supporting and backing select start-ups has on the entire region.

“What we’re trying to do for the area, what we’re trying to do for the community – I think that’s the added element that really excites folks who are involved in this process.”
