Besides that, my past experiences include stints in the field of IRD (Interest Rates Derivatives) with Erstwhile Bear streams & JP Morgan. During this time, Maulik, my brother & partner completed his Btech in IT & a year at Accenture, before joining in full-time. Alongside, Maulik developed Linux OS called ‘Sauver OS’ which was published in the Digit Magazine.
