Mahesh Sashital is the cofounder of Smartereum.com, one of the fastest growing online news sites catering exclusively to the blockchain and cryptocurrency community. Having jumped full-time into the blockchain space in 2016, Mahesh and his business partners started Smartereum in 2017 when they saw the gap in coverage of blockchain news in the mainstream media.
After earning his MBA at the University of Texas-Austin, Mahesh left his relatively cushy job at J.P.Morgan to pursue entrepreneurship. With over 350,000 users (and growing) across the globe getting their blockchain news from Smartereum every month, he is finding this experience very rewarding!
Mahesh is a software engineer by background, having worked at Fortune 500 companies such as Ford and Chrysler, in addition to J.P.Morgan. A native of Mumbai, India, he has called Houston home for over 12 years.
In his spare time, Mahesh manages the back office operations for a day spa that he co-owns with his wife!
