Hey there! I’m Tanay. I’m an early-stage investor at Wing investing in AI application software and data/AI infrastructure. Previously, I was a product lead at Meta where I worked on the News Feed Ranking team and various ads teams.

This is where I post longer-form thoughts on technology and business every week or other week. I also post shorter form content on my Twitter.
