Alok Deshpande

Co-Founder and CEO, SmartPath


After earning degrees at Emory and Harvard University, Alok began working at Bain & Company as a consultant and later manager. Recognizing that only 4 of 50 states require financial education to graduate from high school, he eventually left his job to follow his passion of teaching personal finance. 

Inspired by his mother, who immigrated to the US, and watching her grow her $8 into a million, Alok published his own system called Financial Fuel and the 7-Tank System, which has since transformed into what is today SmartPath, where he is Co-Founder and CEO.
