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.
