“Growing up, I belonged to the ‘lower middle-class’ where having a car and a house of your own was a luxury. I saw my dad emerge from poverty into the rising middle-class fabric of India. Seeing that story unfold in front of me as a child forged a strong sense of optimism in me, my most defining trait, both personally and professionally.“
Palash, Goldcast co-founder and CEO, got his first taste of entrepreneurship charging kids from the neighborhood to play video games on his second-hand console. Palash says he’s always been fascinated by legacy companies like Microsoft, Verizon and Disney that excelled at identifying and riding longterm trends, while also building resilience.
Palash got his start in engineering, then moved on to leadership roles at a mobile adtech company. He began pursuing an MBA at Harvard but after meeting his co-founders and developing the idea for Goldcast, he took a leave of absence to pursue his vision of helping B2B marketers run engaging digital events. He loves to read, especially science, biology and history books.
