Picture of Anand Upender

Anand Upender

Anand loves to make things — especially things that solve needs, evoke delight, or are interactive. He studied Product Design at Stanford University and is spending the first part of his gap year post-undergrad in Copenhagen, living in Nest and working at Urgent.Agency. He has previously worked as a fellow, consultant, and team lead at companies like IDEO CoLab, Ford and Facebook.

He grew up in a household of entrepreneurs; his father created mobile games for the first iPhone. Since then, he has been interested in the Lean Startup movement and is currently working on FamilyRoom, a project focused on helping families capture the most emotional and helpful memories of their oldest living generations.

Oh, and he also enjoys cooking elaborate meals with aesthetic platings for lively communities of people.
