Hi! I'm Swapna Malekar.

Product Whisperer. I love creating products that have tangible impact in the world.
Passionate about #AI #Fintech #DigitalIdentity & all things Technology.


I've given numerous talks at local events & conferences, sat on various panel discussions and conducted product management workshops over the past few years. 

I love writing all things technology, innovation, product management, fin-tech and the art of navigating the corporate environment. 

I stay abreast of what's happening in my world by reading TechCrunch, attending product and industry events/conferences and meeting diverse kinds of people for coffee chats. 

I mentor & coach new product managers and upcoming leaders in product management, leadership and self-confidence. 

I'm a zealous traveller, loving both the chaos of the big cities as well as the serenity of a good hike in nature.
