Indian origin US CTO Aneesh Chopra becomes co-founder of private company
The first Indian Origin chief technology officer for the US, Aneesh Chopra, is now reportedly the co-founder of an Arlington-based data and analytics company.
Chopra, who stepped down to run an unsuccessful campaign for lieutenant governor of Virginia, became the co-founder Hunch Analytics, which was founded last October and aims at crunching public and private data to help executives and industry leaders in health care, education and energy to make smarter business decisions.
According to the Washington Post, the website states that their proprietary algorithms and decision-engines are built mashing up public and private databases to help organizations optimize 'productivity and profitability'
However, there have been very less details about the company beyond what is stated on its website and on social networks and Chopra has revealed that Hunch Analytics is still in stealth mode.
Dan Ross, a former managing director at Reston-based Claraview, is reportedly also listed as co-founder and executive vice president at Hunch Analytics.
Chopra is best known as President Obama's pick to serve as the nation's first chief technology officer from May 2009 to February 2012, the report added.
