A BIT ABOUT ME
Hi there! My name is Akshay Kamath and I am a recent graduate of the Honors College of Rutgers University - New Brunswick with 2+ years of healthcare consulting & storytelling experience. While many of my passions come from this quantitative interest in analyzing outcomes, more of them stem from engaging with my vibrant communities of North Brunswick and New Brunswick, NJ as a vehicle for my drive to give back. I unwaveringly believe that, in order to effect true change, we must first listen and then speak for those who may not have a voice.
I thought a website would be the ideal platform for introducing myself, my work, and my inspirations. Since I’ve always appreciated a wide variety of life experiences, this site includes a little bit of everything.
I’d love to hear your feedback or thoughts, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

THE POWER OF STORYTELLING
In developing a venture from ideation to execution, I struggled to find the right resources to develop an effective pitch for our work. After my team and I were able to earn $100K+ in non-dilutive funding, I wrote Make It Matter to develop the resource I wish I had in the hopes of simplifying this process for budding entrepreneurs.
MIT-HARVARD MEDICAL SCHOOL HEALTHCARE INNOVATION BOOTCAMP
Working with 4 highly talented professionals, my team and I developed and pitched a discreet bracelet that eliminates 100% of essential hand tremors via neuromodulation.
CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE UNIVERSITY
Featured Presenter & Campus Representative
I was honored to have the opportunity to speak at the opening plenary session (Expanding Civic Engagement) of the 2018 Clinton Global Initiative University conference. Representing public health progress aside 4 highly impactful student leaders and the 42nd President of the United States, Bill Clinton, I was inspired to think more critically and push the worldwide efforts at ending child malnutrition even further.
FORBES UNDER 30 SCHOLAR
Upon being selected by the Honors College as a Social Innovation Fellow, by the New Jersey Technology Council as an up-and-coming Innovator to Watch, and by MIT & HMS as a finalist in their Healthcare Innovation Program, I was recognized as a Forbes Under 30 Scholar in Healthcare.
