Rishi always had an entrepreneurial drive in his DNA, and his stints in business development reinforced it. This entrepreneurial drive has been at the core of Rishi’s corporate career and some critical decisions throughout his tenure. He began his career part-time, selling SIM cards in 1999. Since cellphones were not a “thing” in those days, selling SIM cards was quite a luxurious occupation.
His non-technical background could never hold him from growing in the technological landscape. Over the past 16 years, he has evolved as a sought-after tech-product leader. His work experience across the spectrum -- startups to MNCs -- consists of owning an end-to-end product roadmap of Kindle (Amazon) and Oyo Life.
He is innately curious to learn more, own new challenges, and network across functions. “Work Hard” and “It’s still Day1” ideologies keep him charged and brimming with energy and motivation throughout the week, week after week, month after month!
Rishi loves mentoring emerging product leaders, spending quality and fun-filled time with his kids (Disha & Darsh), and debating some of the hottest and trending UX cases with his wife, a senior UX leader.
Rishi received a master's diploma in marketing from IP University, Delhi, and Bachelor's in commerce from Patna University, is all set to scale greater heights in the coming time.
