About the Episode

The what's what...

In just a moment, you'll meet Soham Khaitan - Co-Founder and COO of Ambi, a first-of-its-kind social learning network.

In high school, Soham's parents had encouraged him to pursue a career in consulting or work for a Fortune 500 brand (after graduating from college of course). But in his junior year at Babson College in Massachusetts, he was bit by the entrepreneurial bug and began to work on what would become Ambi.

In the episode, Soham discusses how he convinced the same folks who designed Instagram and Slack to design Ambi, and what it was like pitching Ambi, which is poised to compete with Facebook, to Arielle Zuckerberg, Mark Zuckerberg's sister.

Tune in to hear the origin story of the company that just might disrupt the Blackboards of the world and become the premier digital space where every college student comes to learn, network, and collaborate.
