Many Harvard Asian American undergraduates I know with immigrant parents who are physicians receive a lot of pressure from their families to be a doctor. But not Divya Narendra, (Class of 2004)

While at Harvard, Divya was given the space and the autonomy he needed to think critically and explore creatively what he wanted as a consumer that was missing in the market. Soon, he became an entrepreneur.

In “Where Are They Now?” episode #2, Gemma Schneider (Harvard student journalist/Class of 2023) interviews Divya Narendra, CEO and co-founder of SumZero - an online community for professional investors to share business research.  Divya’s business mindset was formed during his Harvard days when he launched the Facebook forerunner HarvardConnection, or ConnectU. You may remember his role with Mark Zuckerberg in the 2010 feature film “The Social Network,”- a portrayal of the great minds which think alike but also fall apart due to fierce business competition.

I am happy to be co-hosting as a contributing commentator for this episode.

Where Are They Now?” is a special co-production between One in a Billion and WHRB (Harvard Radio Broadcasting).

It is a 6-part series featuring one-on-one interviews with Harvard graduates who draw lessons from their campus experience and personal insight from their current career to give you a taste of their trailblazing journey.

“Where Are They Now” is sponsored exclusively by One in a Billion Productions Inc. (501c3) – an educational media company designed to foster Asian voices and to build bridges between different communities of color.  We believe in the power of personal storytelling to reach a wider and diverse community of audiences for better intercultural understanding.
