Founder and chairman of Peek, the company whose genius cloud and tech stack put smart apps on every phone. Peek started with the award-winning mobile messenger designed to be simple and affordable way for early users to get into the smartphone world. Peek was an award winner in Time, Wired, BusinessWeek, and ID Magazine’s product of the year.

Peek’s software is installed on millions of phones designed by emerging phone makers around the world and sold in India, China, Indonesia, Latin America, and Africa.

Peek’s mail, chat, social, sync, backup, sharing and other apps are lighter and faster on low-resource smartphones and featurephones, bringing high-end experiences to phones as low as a $20 bill of materials.

Peek has raised over $25mm in venture and strategic capital from New York and global investors.

Amol was the second employee of Virgin Mobile USA, consultant at McKinsey & Company in New York, Ph.D. from Stanford in cognitive science and undergraduate from Columbia. Lives in NY with his family.
