His product focus is on machine data, machine learning, and artificial intelligence platforms for consumer & enterprise use cases.

Birju hopes to work with students that are eager to achieve scale and see ideas to execution either as product innovators in large organizations or as an early stage founder. His philosophy is to teach product strategy, product planning, and product management through a case-based approach. The goal of the class is to differentiate from the entrepreneurship classes offered by teaching you and your team to build an excellent product for your customers, as a predecessor to launching your full venture.
