Hi, I am Nataraj. I expand my leverage with code (working at Azure), capital (investments) & media (blog & podcasts).

I like to talk to people who are creating something interesting & new. If you are one of those feel free to reach out. After all internet is created for this purpose.

Check out my latest podcast conversations here.

I am easy to reach but be patient if I don’t respond. For quick response provide clarity on what your ask is.


I spent most of my day leveraging code both as a Software Developer & now a Product Manager. I have worked across products ranging from healthcare software, Dynamics 365, Hybrid Cloud & currently in managed File Share products at Azure.

I believe that individuals are not designed to one thing all their life, so I do different interesting things at any given time, or at least try to. This means I occasionally invest in companies through my syndicate and host a podcast as an excuse to talk to people I find interesting on the web.

Open To:

Public speaking at conferences, podcasts & events on technology, startups, early stage investing, B2B product development, strategy & cloud technologies. Check out my previous appearances here, here & here.

Advice startups on how to raise their pre-seed round, best practices on building pitch decks, approaching investors, evaluating if the idea is venture scale & exploring alternative fund raising mechanisms.

Collaborate with other podcasters & content creators to create new podcasts  and content related to the business of technology.
