about Atish Davda

atish davda

My name is Atish Davda.

Living in NYC, I am a quant by training, with founding, operational, and fundraising experience with multiple small businesses. These days, I work as CEO of EquityZen, a company I helped start in 2013 with my co-founders. EquityZen is a marketplace for investing in and selling shares of pre-IPO technology companies.

In what seems like a past life, I was VP Product at Ampush, a big-data advertising technology firm. I began my career on the investment research team at AQR Capital, along with three of my best friends from school.

I also serve as an Executive Board Member for PennPAC (Penn Pro-bono Alumni Consulting), a nonprofit that helps other nonprofits thrive. Occasionally, I write for Inc.com and Wharton Magazine on private markets, entrepreneurship, and leadership.

When not at the office, I can be found playing tennis, traveling, or sampling new hot sauces.
