About Deepak

I'm currently the founder of The Lobby (www.thelobby.io), an online marketplace where job seekers can buy phone calls with employees at top companies in exchange for personalized recruiting advice and the chance to get an employee referral for those jobs.

We went through Tacklebox Accelerator (~10% acceptance rate) last month, closed a paid pilot with Bentley University, and had a successful MVP where we sold over $1,100 in calls on the back of a LinkedIn status, spreadsheets, and a Wix landing page I built.

I'm also a fellow at The Kairos Society in NYC (www.kairossociety.com), an invite-only entrepreneurship society that has been endorsed by Richard Branson, Bill Clinton, Tim Draper, among others.

Prior to that, I was the founder of Legaats (www.rc.legaats.com), a wisdom-sharing app focused on baby boomers which I've since stopped working on.

Before all that, I was an investment banking analyst at BofA Merrill Lynch. I've taken courses in product management and front-end web development as well.

Passionate about building products, teams, and companies that not only generate value to stakeholders, but also improve society as a whole. Feel free to reach out at deepak@thelobby.io
