Akhil in a few words

I am a technology entrepreneur with rich and diverse experience across ed tech, health tech, clean tech and FMCG. I have been a Director of Product with a Series E start up- Practo, where I have led a team of 19 engineers, 2 product managers and 4 designers to build and scale multiple mobile and web SaaS applications for use in hospitals and clinics. I have deep consumer understanding and can quickly iterate with the team to develop the best solution for any problem. In my own start up, I have built a crowdfunding platform and a multi-sided solar marketplace.
