Taran spearheads our Fellowship Program, which sends elite young professionals to work at our ventures around the world for 6 months to a year. Our Fellows help alleviate one of our ventures' main pain points: Finding high-quality talent to help them scale. Taran is passionate about entrepreneurship and economic development in emerging markets and he plans on dedicating his life to help others around the world fulfill their sense of purpose through economic opportunity. Before Alter, Taran worked as the Team Lead of Operations for a tech start-up, where he helped oversee the Ops team grow from 2 people to 75 over the course of a couple of years. Taran earned his Bachelors from UC Berkeley and he's studied, worked, or traveled in over 35 countries across 6 continents.
