Anand Sanwal
CEO, Co-founder, Customer Service





What do you do at CB Insights? What did you do before?

I am primarily focused on sales, product, recruiting & content but will get involved in other areas as requisite.  Prior to founding CBI, I ran American Express’ $50M Chairman’s Innovation Fund and the CFO’s strategic planning group.  I also wrote a book which you should buy if you’re having problems sleeping.

What’s one interesting fact that not many people know about you?

I have climbed Mt Kilimanjaro and ran all 5 NYC half-marathons. That’s two facts – sorry.

What’s your ideal vacation spot?

Park City, UT or anywhere similar with good friends.

1 horse-size duck or 100 duck-size horses? Why?

1 horse-size duck.  I’d start a food truck selling gourmet grass-fed duck egg omelettes.
