About Atishay

I am an award winning executive technical leader with 15 years of experience. Key highlights of my career include 6 years at Microsoft (Redmond, WA) building features for Windows and Outlook followed by 5 years as the founding member, CTO & CPO of a fintech startup where I built the tech platform from scratch and took the company from zero to 200M USD in revenue. I enjoy building scalable, robust solutions to achieve business goals and possess a strong ability to learn. I also serve on advisory board of few startups.

I am also recipient of the prestigious Erasmus Mundus Scholarship program in Network and e Business Centred Computing (given by the European Union). Was one of the 30 students selected worldwide and one of 2 from India for this program.

I volunteer for social causes from time to time. I am active meditator (Vipassana).

Following are the key thoughts that I try to imbibe in my personal and work life:

If you love life, don’t waste time, for time is what life is made up of

Bruce Lee

You can never win or lose if you don’t run the race.

Hal WhiteSide

The capacity to learn is a gift. The ability to learn is a skill. The willingness to learn is a choice.

Brian Herbert

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.

Albert Einstein

The quest to find the truth is useful only if you are going to act on it.
