Ajay Rayasam

Senior Associate,


Why OUP?

I love working with founders, researchers, and institutions to launch startups that could have a longstanding, positive impact on our society.

Ajay joined Osage University Partners in 2021. At OUP, he focuses on technology investments across software, computing and hardware. Before joining OUP, Ajay was the chief of staff and product manager at Kubisys, an enterprise software startup that raised over $15M. While there, he led fundraising and business development efforts while launching mission-critical products. As a graduate student at MIT, Ajay researched the intersection of engineering, business and design. He built an algorithm to predict the likelihood of a student dropping out due to mental illness.

Ajay holds an M.S. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Engineering & Management (Integrated Design & Management Fellow) and a B.Sc. from Babson College.
