Tech has always been a part of Aalok Shah’s life. His father and mother influenced his tech interests and biomedical education. After working in nuclear medicine and supporting the special needs community, he found himself always drifting back towards tech and software development, hacking together websites and doing web consulting. Several years later, he was onboarded by the founders of EnergyFunders – a platform for investing in Oil & Gas – to help improve their technology feature set. The business took off, and they found themselves in need of a full time CTO – and Aalok was the best fit.
