BOND.AI announces the joining of Yogesh Asudani as Executive Vice President, Partnerships.
Yogesh Asudani will be essential as BOND.AI looks to deliver the Empathy Engine experience into enterprise and small businesses. His knowledge and experience in business will be vital to creating valuable partnerships that can benefit consumer financial health.
Asudani joined BOND.AI in early 2022 as an EVP to help develop and launch the company’s corporate and consumer-focused business. Asudani moved to the United States from India in 1999. With his background in electrical and computer engineering, he worked for companies like Nokia and Microsoft for more than a decade. Asudani will work to develop BOND.AI’s Consumer Division and Corporate Alliances.
“Yogesh brings his experience of forming alliances across technology, hospitality, capital markets and small businesses. That is an incredibly unique and invaluable strength,” said Uday Akkaraju, CEO of BOND.AI. “His experience will be vital as we work to deliver our financial-wellness suite to the American workforce.”
After leaving his stint with Fortune 500 companies, Asudani joined a startup in Baltimore where he developed an interest in innovation, startup culture and entrepreneurship. He then began his journey towards his financial independence and achieved it at a noticeably young age. Asudani then began investing in early-stage startups, hedge funds, real estate, hotels, restaurants and more. He was able to leverage his engineering background, investment knowhow, and interest and knowledge in technology to produce innovative ideas to improve and scale up each investment and make them profitable not only for him, but also his investors.
“As I’ve built my investment portfolio over the years, I wanted to give everyone the tools they need to fulfill their goals for building wealth,” Yogesh Asudani said. “I see the BOND.AI Empathy Engine as the ideal platform to help consumers create their own path to success.”
His passion for entrepreneurship eventually led him to join the BOND.AI family where he saw the potential of its Empathy Engine to allow all consumers to create their own paths towards financial independence through behavioral change, actionable insights, and curated wealth-enhancing strategies.
Asudani received his BE, Electrical & Computer Engineering from California State Polytechnic University-Pomona.
