I’m Siddhi Mittal, Co-founder of yhangry (YC W22). We’re a private chef marketplace, where you can book a chef from just £30pp.
Before yhangry, I was trading financial bonds & asset backed securities for 6.5yrs. I was responsible for trading risk assets over $500m in balance sheet, and loved taking a view and putting on prop trades. I graduated from Columbia University and studied Artificial Intelligence in 2013. I loved being a trader, but towards the end of that journey yearned to build my own startup and have a lasting impact.
During my downtime, I enjoy making barista-style coffee, dancing (I’m a competitive Bollywood dancer), reading books, taking a nice walk, and doing yoga (this is very new). I also love 1:1 meaningful catchups with friends, spending time with family, and sharing war stories with founders.
Ask me anything about building a marketplace, going through ycombinator, building a strong co-founder relationship, building mental resilience, being a professional Bollywood dancer, or anything else!
