Priyank Pandey, Founder and Principal
I started my career as a Consultant at Accenture and later at Deloitte. I advised clients on complex merger transitions, big data analytics, and operational best practices across financial services, healthcare, and non-profit sectors. I provided innovative insights for my clients and became a trusted adviser to my clients, helping them solve complex operational and strategic problems.
However, my consulting career was vastly different than the small business environment I grew up in. My parents are both small business owners in Florida and I always envisioned myself emulating them. I am passionate about leading through values of humility, hard work, and positively impacting my community through business. Thus, I founded New Zephyr to focus my energy on entrepreneurship.
I hold a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from University of Florida and an MBA from Columbia Business School. I am also a CFA Charterholder.
New Zephyr is backed by a group of investors, operators, and entrepreneurs aligned to New Zephyr's goals and values. Below is a select list of New Zephyr's institutional investors. Please contact me for a full investor list.
