I've been in CORE since fall of my freshman year and have seen the organization grow vigorously from just a handful of overenthusiastic folks to a group of nearly seventy overenthusiastic folks. This past summer, I interned as a software developer intern at Bloomberg. I work on CORE's technical infrastructure, #StartupColumbia, and the Columbia Venture Competition.
I joined CORE as one of the early members of CORE Impulse. I've served as co-Editor-in-Chief and am continuing as Strategy and Operations Officer for the blog to further develop its internal teams. I love to travel (studying abroad in Buenos Aires, interning in London, etc.) and can't wait for the next CORE tech trek!
A pianist in the Columbia-Juilliard Exchange, I wanted to share one of my earliest passions by founding Columbia Pops, Columbia’s first pops orchestra. I'm majoring in neuroscience and hope to work in product management. As part of CORE, I've led the VC Analyst Internship Program, two bio-health panels, and marketing/logistics for bringing Peter Thiel to speak at Columbia.
I joined CORE at the beginning of my sophomore year and have been involved with initiatives like organizing dinners with entrepreneurs and building community within CORE. I fell in love with startups after interning at a wedding startup in Chicago. Hobbies include sleeping, taking walks, playing piano, reading, and memorizing poetry.
Hey! My name's Mayank - I'm a third year in SEAS. I've been a member of CORE for five semesters and an OP for two, and I'm currently involved with #StartupColumbia as well as volunteering in several of CORE's higher profile events. In addition to CORE, I dance for Columbia Raas and serve on the Engineering Student Council. Hit me up if you want to grab coffee!
I will be graduating in the spring and moving to San Francisco to work full-time at Google! Currently, I'm working on Almaworks, CORE's student-run accelerator. Long-term, I hope to get involved in an early-stage technology startup or launch my own venture.
