The Beard

Rameet Chawla

The story starts with Rameet selling candy and burned CDs at school in order to earn some extra income...for his stock portfolio. From there he moved on to designing flyers for his mom’s real estate company, then eventually her colleagues, before moving onto building websites for them too. All before 18.

When Rameet was graduating high school, his dad told him to pay for his own college tuition as an exercise in character. Naturally, Rameet made a deal. He said he’d pay the first two years and if he got into a top 10 institution his dad would pay for the remaining two years. In typical Rameet fashion, he crushed it and got into NYU’s Stern School of Business where he went on to triple (that’s 3!) major.
