Deepa Subramanian started out as a physics major and switched to computer science when she realized how much she loved that kind of problem solving. Since then, she has been a product manager at all kinds of of companies, from tech giants like Adobe to non-profits like Charity: Water—she even spearheaded the product direction with Hillary for America. As it turns out, political campaigns have a lot more in common with startups than you might think. In her “drunken walk” as an entrepreneur, Deepa stresses the value of testing with users, even when your users could be anyone in America.

Deepa went on from Hillary for America to work with Kickstarter before starting her own company, Wherewithall, to focus on helping tech startups and non-profits grow.
