Rakesh Patel

Hello! I'm a product leader focused on building AI Products from 0 to 1 to scale.

I'm a technical, hands-on PM who has been focused on building and scaling AI products for the last 7 years. I've worked with some of the largest commercial customers such as Whole Foods, Vodafone, Nike, and Outerwall. More recently, I've been building Generative AI products for various government agencies.

I'm currently working on a few personal projects in the Gen AI space focused on leveraging LLMs to make financial processes more conversational.
