Hoopdarshan Episode 16: How Vasu Kulkarni's Krossover is transforming basketball analytics

#MoreWins is the theme of Episode 16 of Hoopdarshan, the finest podcast on Indian Basketball. Hosts Kaushik Lakshman and Karan Madhok are joined by Bengaluru-raised tech entrepreneur Vasu Kulkarni, who has turned his start-up 'Krossover' into a must-have service for NBA, College, and High-School coaches in North America and beyond. In a candid chat, Kulkarni spoke to us about how growing up and learning hoops in Bengaluru shaped his ambitions, how Krossover is furthering advanced analytics in basketball, and meeting God... er, Michael Jordan.

Born in the USA, raised and honed in Bengaluru, and making his way back Stateside via the University of Pennsylvania, Vasu Kulkarni has turned his passion for basketball into a profession and a business that is, in turn, helping the development of the sport itself. Kulkarni is the founder and CEO of Krossover and can be currently found perfectly balancing the scales between tech entrepreneurship and basketball addiction. You can learn more about him from an interview on Hoopistani last year.

Hoopdarshan aims to be the true voice of Indian basketball, and since we're such hopeless fans of the game, it will become the voice of everything basketball related we love, from the NBA to international hoops, too. On every episode of Hoopdarshan, we will be inviting a special guest to interview or chat to about a variety of topics. With expert insight from some of the brightest and most-involved people in the world of Indian basketball, we hope to bring this conversation to a many more interested fans, players, and followers of the game.
