Manish’s passion for building began when he was a kid. Whether it was on his brother’s Commodore 128 or with a bucket of Legos, he loved to create experiences that stretched the imagination. Today, that same excitement drives his involvement in the startup community. Manish helps teams realize their potential as they evolve from an insight, to an experience, to a business.
