I’m the Founder of ekCoffee, where Indian singles meet over a cup of coffee. In the past, I led platform engineering at CrunchBase and the development team at TechCrunch, and worked on NOC software at Qualcomm.
I’m a proponent of side projects and have had one at any given time in the past decade. My current startup is the result of one such side project. In doing so, I’ve also built (and sometimes launched) an SMS-based classifieds service, a carpooling service in the early web 2.0 days, and a Chrome email extension that held promise in solving my email woes.
I enjoy building early-stage teams and launching and growing products from the ground up.
I love classic motorcycles and the cafe racer styling and own and ride a Royal Enfield Bullet C5 Military and a modified 1976 Kawasaki KZ400 cafe racer.
I’m most active on Twitter. Follow me @vinthanedar.
From time to time, I post my thoughts here.
