Samyak Bardia

Vice President

Growing up as the youngest in a house of 15 members, I've always been inquisitive about what drives people. My personal driver is to build from ground up, while enjoying the process- reflected in my passion for startups. 

Most recently, I have been fortunate to have built a psychology based edutech product & a green tea brand, both having strong performance indicators (30M INR+ ARR, 70+ NPS, 35%+ Retention Rates). 

I enjoy all kinds of sports, and like to travel during my spare time.
