My name is Amrit Pal. I am a product builder based in San Francisco.
I am interested in helping people exercise their agency. Towards that outcome, I enjoy working and investing in people/organizations that build tools in areas with high barriers to entry.
These days, I work at WhatsApp in the San Francisco Bay Area as a Product Manager.
Before WhatsApp, I led and started products at Square that move billions of dollars annually. I got started in product at a startup in sub-saharan Africa and have lived between Kenya, Goa, Bangalore, Seattle and San Francisco. Outside work, I am a fellow at a FinTech Research Institute at University of California and Product School, San Francisco
In my free time, I speak and read about product management, unlocking financial access, emerging markets and anthropology.
