What brought Ankit to the Bay?
This week I catch up with Ankit Talwar about what brought him to the Bay.
“Working and living in San Francisco, USA has always been a dream of mine after university, after many years in Australia and spending last 7 years working and venturing across UK/Europe, my timing for the next challenge was perfect, I took the plunge and came over to the West Coast with dreams of learnings and greater successes.”
