Key Accomplishments

Serial entrepreneur and business guy (used to be a doctor). Impact oriented, innovative. Personally drove projects with EBITDA impact summing to >$100M. More of a generalist who likes to get his hands dirty. Mix of McKinsey discipline with disruptor's focus on changing the game with social entrepreneur's drive to put a positive dent in the universe.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I bring a mix of strategist, story-teller, rocket fuel, and lean operations disciple.

I love to get my hands dirty and connect the strategy to the execution. I'm at my best when taking on impossible challenges to achieve a phenomenal game-changing objective. I have a dynamic understanding of markets and business models and a bottom-up approach to taking on markets one customer segment at a time.

I bring technical awareness, but not yet any coding skills (working on that) but I can prototype stuff from a UI/ product perspective.

As an Advisor

Tend to focus on 1) understanding the levers to drive the business results, 2) deploying a strategy to capture the top growth/ efficiency levers (incl. new product development or transformation programs), 3) development work with executive team to improve capabilities and decision-making
