Mastermind your success 

The Vyas Group of Companies under the flagship brand of “Mastermind” entered the Information Technology space in the year 2001.

At Mastermind, we stand committed to creating a world of trust between our customers and us.

We seek to create valued and trusted relationships between customers, vendors, employees, individuals and businesses. We do this irrespective of the size or location of the business we serve. Mastermind’s range of products & services adds the elements of trust and integrity to our relationship ensuring peace of mind and protection!




The Mastermind Story 

Odd thing about startups – simple structures with four walls, a roof and very large door, they continue to serve as the breeding ground for great entertainers and path-breaking companies. The Rolling Stones started in a garage, as did Hewlett Packard, Walt Disney and Infosys. And yes, we started in a garage too.

However, our unparalleled street credibility, non-conformist approach, outstanding products and excellent customer service soon meant that we had to find larger premises both in India and in the United States.

Our customers range from Fortune 500 companies to startups and that we believe is our specialization. Mastermind has products, services and solutions for everybody. We support companies that specialize in semi-conductor chip design, hospitality, logistics, biotech, real estate, infrastructure and telecommunication.

Mastermind’s growth has been realistic with a long term vision to excel, We are proud of the fact that we have managed to expand without losing the core values we started with:
