Hi. I'm Yash @yashchandra


Who Am I

I am an optimist who likes to see the glass as half full than half empty. I have a great family, some awesome friends and overall a life that I am happy about. I am a Tech. Entrepreneur. I quit my job to try something different. I love bootstrapping businesses, technology and education. My long term interests are in Startups & Private Equity.

You can tell a lot about someone by the favorite quotes they have. Here are mine:

  • Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude
  • Shoot for the moon. Even if you fail, you will land among the stars.
  • Always borrow money from a Pessimist. They never expect to get it back anyway.
  • Life is worth at least 1 skydive (this is me skydiving)
  • You’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.
  • Impossible = I-M-POSSIBLE
  • Courage is being afraid but going on anyhow
  • Best way to predict the future is to create it.
  • A DREAM written down with a date Becomes a GOAL. A GOAL broken down into steps Becomes a PLAN. A PLAN backed by ACTION Becomes REALITY

What I do/did

I am the founder of a bootstrapped B2B SAAS called Academy Of Mine and Trainably(coming soon).

I love building and acquiring software products and businesses. I acquired Cronhub and Nop Templates and have been running them as well with a small team.

In my past life, I worked in Investment Banking/Finance for 10+ years as a Technologist. I learned a lot about Capital Markets Industry and worked/consulted at many Fortune 100 clients including Deutsche Bank, HSBC Bank, The World Bank, Fannie Mae, Genworth Financial. But my biggest achievement ? Undoubtedly the smart and brilliant people I worked with over the years and the network I built over time with them. I take pride in doing what I do. The best accomplishment I have is an excellent network of people who can vouch for me anytime.

I'm always happy to meet people and learn from each other. If you have interest in Startups, Software, B2B, SAAS, Dev Tools, Acquisitions, hit me up at Linkedin or Twitter.
