Hello, I’m Amrit

I help build products and organizations that other people find useful. Areas with high barriers to entry and unfair access are interesting to me. I’m have worked or invested in:

  • Fintech— Square and M-PESA
  • End-to-end encrypted communication — WhatsApp
  • Economic utilities — WhatsApp Business, Square
  • Access to capital — affordable loans delivered to entrepreneurs in sub-saharan Africa.

Before WhatsApp, I led and started products at Square, and at a fintech startup in sub-saharan Africa. I have lived in Kenya, India, Seattle and finally, San Francisco.

Outside work, I enjoy typography, right-bank bordeaux, and believe the Pacific Northwest is the most beautiful part of the world.
