1996 - Present
Auckland born, NY raised, Indian origin.
Currently splitting time between the UWS and ABQ, with as much travel as possible in between.
My name is Indranil. Feel free to call me Indy. This site will give you pretty good idea of who I am, but in short, I'm a New Yorker who loves to learn and build things. I am interested in a lot of fields and once I am exposed to something I like, I can get obsessed with it pretty quickly.
Through the week, I'm helping build a mental health platform as their Director of Finance. It's been a wonderful experience thus far and I'm excited to see all of the growth.
Building startups is my professional passion and I have a bunch of ideas of my own. I've helped scale businesses from 1-10, 500-1000, and everything in between, so I'm also always around to chat new ideas and help new founders with things like hiring strategy, business model validation, and financial planning.
Outside of work, I run long distances slowly (4 NYC Marathons down), play tennis decently, and eat all of the wonderful things NYC has to offer. I'm a huge Yankees fan, an F1 nerd, and love going to concerts/festivals.
My personal mission is to improve the world in any way that I can, through any methods I know how, and to leave the world healthier, happier, and kinder than the one we live in today.

It's tough to sum up my NYU experience. I'll start by saying I'm grateful for having gone and think I am better for it. I'm a member of the Haskin's Giving Society and think NYU (especially Stern) does a great job of helping you get a job.
I think I'm just less of a fan of formal education and have learned more through work and projects. But regardless, professors like Andrea Bonezzi, and the city itself make NYU a great school.
