Maithreyi Shankar Linkedin

Consultant

“Start from "why?" rather than "how?", and we can create more successful purpose-driven outcomes.”

Maithreyi Shankar starts and leads client interactions with a simple, “how can I serve you?”, then builds on that client-first approach by putting thoughtfulness into the smallest client interactions, from emails to the way she communicates data and information. She uses her bachelor’s degree in neuroscience and her recent MBA to continue bridging her technologist and humanities training by unlocking new tools and automation processes that keep her clients innovating and achieving their target business goals.  

Maithreyi is also a successful social impact pioneer and strategist, most recently helping a nonprofit develop their fundraising strategy and business plan and has previously created a podcast to help train her clients on software tools and best practices.  She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern California, and an MBA in Social Impact from Boston University Questrom School of Business.
