Deep Paknikar is an entrepreneur, speaker, and investor. With MS in Computer Science and MBA, she has worked in Fortune 500 companies like Microsoft and Amazon as a Software Engineer.
Well-educated and having worked in some of the top companies in the world, Deep noticed a few financial concerns unique to those working in the tech space. The tech industry is very competitive and attracts the best and the brightest from all over the world. The techies had above-average incomes, but very little time to invest and grow their money. Also, most of them were heavily invested in stocks with the only risk balancing Real Estate asset being their primary home. For female techies, the challenges were even bigger. Given the challenges of climbing the corporate ladder in a primarily male-dominated industry along with maintaining work-life balance left them with little time for investing.
