Key Accomplishments

At my previous small company I started out of my bedroom to teach US students online, I did everything from cold calling, setting up the site, hiring teachers, writing marketing materials etc. I strive towards building a business really quickly incorporate customer feedback and iterate. I'm also working on a website right now. Learning and hacking my way through. I am most comfortable with Python and recently picked up HTML, CSS, javascript, and a web framework- Django.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I'm looking to work with people who share the vision but bring in critical feedback on various aspects, who help build the product that's valuable for customers, and do it fast. I'm a big fan of getting the first version out and quickly iterating based on customer feedback. I'm mostly looking for people to help implement ideas faster and who complement my limited technical knowledge. I am fairly good at handling business side of things (helped run my father's business in India before moving out of the country.)

As an Advisor

I like to spend some time with teams and understand their product before giving my input. I am willing to use the product to help develop competitive advantages and help focus on amplifying the features that product does well. I could help founders think about data points that need to be collected for their product and define metrics to improve customer engagement. I am usually available in the evenings after work and anytime on weekends.
