Akshay is the co-founder of Pulse News, a beautiful mobile application that makes news reading fun and engaging. Previously, he was a graduate student in Electrical Engineering at Stanford University. He calls himself a “fake EE” since he spent most of his time taking computer science and design courses. A year ago, Akshay and his co-founder, Ankit, designed and developed the Pulse News app in 6 weeks. They dreamed of selling a few hundred copies of Pulse to recover the cost of their brand new iPad. Today, their dreams have gotten much bigger as they hope to revolutionize the way people read news on mobile devices.
