Pankaj Shah is an Investor, Business Advisor, Founder of Finches, a global collective of thought leaders in early stage technology and Founder of Sparrows, a networking platform that allows you to humanize your professional life.
In this episode, Pankaj and Amy Jo discuss a Why Not Now? moment in which he decided to quit his job, sell his house, and go 103 weeks without a paycheck to start his first company. Pankaj shares the professional and personal sides of that journey, which includes the birth of his second child in the middle of it.
Pankaj has invested in dozens of companies and he discusses what he looks for in a founder when he’s deciding to invest in a company. He also talks about what he does to invest in himself as well as recognizing the difference between happiness and purpose.
Pankaj also talks about his new company, Sparrows. The platform was designed to allow you to share more of who you are rather than what you’ve done in order to humanize your professional life to make stronger connections.
You’ll also hear his unique time management tips & the things he does throughout the day to keep his mind engaged.
