Hello! I'm Ameya
'Fortune favors the bold' reminds me of taking risk, every morning! You only get one life and I believe in making calculated decisions, decisions that have a downside that makes you aware of the importance of your decisions and a huge upside which keeps you motivated to strive towards making a correct one!
'Solitude is a time and space where creativity happens' - every day I take some time to reflect on the problems, we as a universe, are going through and think of solutions that me, as an individual, can contribute. This not only helps me exercising my brainstorming muscles but also helps me in getting a different perspective in looking at problems.
Professionally, I work as a Product Manager at Goldman Sachs Accelerate-funded business, CostQ. A digital platform for modelling and analysing firms most complex strategic opportunities, from entity optimisations to acquisitions.
