Satyajit Rout

Hi–I’m Satyajit Rout. I help organizations, founders, and emerging leaders improve the quality of their decisions. Over time I’ve realized that making better decisions at work permeates all areas of our lives. I hope it’ll be the same for you.

My Founding Story

Over the last decade, I’ve spent years evaluating several early-stage startups in the science communication space for investment, one of which was a Toronto-based startup called Sciencescape [Trivia: the startup was later acquired by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and was renamed Meta. You know the rest of the story].
