CEO and Co-Founder
Ananth Kasturiraman is the co-founder and CEO of Skillist, a social enterprise startup. Skillist's skill-based hiring platform connects companies in need of entry-level talent to relevant, often-overlooked jobseekers -- like the millions of Americans without four-year college degrees. Prior to starting Skillist in December 2016 with co-founder Caroline Fay, Ananth spent his career at the intersection of business strategy and social impact initiatives, while working in the Office of Planning and Budget at UC Riverside, on the KIPP Through College team at the KIPP Foundation, and at Bain & Company. He is a first-generation American and proud product of the California public school system.
