Co-founder & CEO, Pulse
Akshay Kothari is the co-founder and CEO of Pulse, the award-winning application that makes it easy to consume news on mobile phones, tablets and computers. Frustrated by his own news reading experience, Akshay designed Pulse while he was a graduate student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. In less than two years, Pulse has grown to be a leader in the space with over 20 million users. He gets excited about the potential of brand advertising, and is working closely with publishers and brands to make this happen on Pulse.
