Vikram Akula is the Founder and CEO of SKS Microfinance, one of the leading microfinance institutions in the world. Akula launched SKS in 1997 because of a fundamental flaw he saw with microfinance - namely, its inability to scale to large numbers.

Akula is also the founder of SKS Foundation, which is a U.S.-based non profit organization that supports the Ultra Poor Program, a program that attacks the challenge of extreme poverty on three levels: economic, social and health, and aims to graduate clients into being able to run a sustainable income-generating enterprise - and potentially into mainstream microfinance.
