IEC Awards 2018 Winner — Young Executive [Male]
Prashanth Puspanathan’s journey as an entrepreneur has not been a traditional one as he is a psychiatrist turned entrepreneur, now running a financial services brokerage. Prash says it has been “a huge leap and an ongoing steep learning curve”.
Prash taught himself the basics of business, getting access to undergraduate lectures in Business and Economics from a friend at Carnegie Mellon and poring through them painstakingly.
“But running a business, I have learnt is primarily still about people and with my background, people is something I understand and enjoy.” So Prash assembled a team with a mix of experienced traders and bright young minds in the cryptocurrency space and today they form the team that is Caleb & Brown.
The company was awarded Fintech Startup of the Year 2018 by the Stockbrokers and Financial Advisors Association, and is now branching out into crypto tax consultancy.
