Achuta Anekal is an Engineer by degree and a designer by passion. He likes dabbling with new tech, experimental innovation, and human-centred design. He graduated as an Electronics engineer from PES University in 2020, and his previous experience as a designer was at a design firm called Thence where he helped build a popular stock trading app.
When asked why he chose to delve into design, Achuta said:
For Achuta, a good day at work is divided clearly: 30% of the time in team meetings and 70% of the time doing deep work. Three people that inspire him are:
Who: Marc Andreessen, Peter Thiel and Sridhar Vembu.
Why: They think based on first principles, they don't conform
Achuta loves sports. You could talk to him for hours about basketball, cricket, F1, and the NFL. He also enjoys reading a lot—on software, money, medieval Indian history, and most recently synthetic biology.
#BeyondTheObvious, Achuta can be found hanging out with his friends and family, watching interesting movies, reading good things, eating great food, and most importantly, having a peaceful afternoon nap.
