Ameya started his own website design company while still in his third year of Engineering. He took up jobs for some of the leading colleges in the state, was recognized by IEEE and built over 50 portals by the time he completed his graduation. He would push it under the rug, but this small stint got him placed into Patni Computer Systems without an interview. He continued to develop his graduate year project at Honeywell, where he took the first ever product he built to the market, and that’s how he tasted blood. Thereafter, he consciously chose product development companies, especially those with interesting problem statements. Approva that built a product to aid SOX compliance, Sungard which managed reconciliation for large equity firms, AnaData which productized data analysis for Casinos, Tieto which built data integration and workflow apps for Scandinavian healthcare and welfare. Ameya eventually settled on a fintech idea and co-founded Dynamic Budgets, successfully exited after eight years of budgeting, reconciliation and forecasting for enterprise customers that consciously chose DBUD despite being license holders to some of the industry’s large ERP platforms. Ameya loves building software products, meeting and talking to people to translate their compelling need into natural feature workflows. He finds comfort in the most obscure problem areas that a few venture into. He rides motorcycles, derives joy in gardening, and writes, especially when his thoughts are better left unspoken.
