About Me

Technology leader who has won awards for managing both people and products with a customer-first design philosophy and technical background.

Tanu Chellam at HBS

In 2012, a friend and I were crossing the road, when a truck crashed into us. It took me almost 9 months to learn how to walk again and changed my life forever.

So every day, I wake up wanting to make a difference. To me, meaning comes from giving back to society in a sustainable way while being able to provide for myself and my family. Through growing or rebuilding products and my entrepreneurial experiences in the past 15+ years globally, my passion lies in helping for-profit startups innovate towards driving meaningful change. I have held managerial and leadership roles internationally, working across a range of corporate and startup environments.

At Seldon, I lead the product management team, comprising product, design and developer relations, where I enable the company to innovate towards ethical change with a profitable business model.

I also previously co-founded and currently head the board of directors for a technology venture builder consultancy, Rosetta Digital, providing product management, engineering, design, marketing and strategy services globally.
