Founding Advisors

Anna Khan

Technology

Anna is Director of Strategy and Development at Palindrome Advisors and serves as Associate to the CEO at 4INFO, Inc, focusing on Corporate Development. Anna is a recent honors graduate from Stanford University, having led a 600+ undergraduate women's business organization as President. The organization, Stanford Women in Business (SWIB), provides women the opportunity to build a foundation in business at a young age and join an encouraging community of aspiring businesswomen. Anna now serves on the Advisory Board of SWIB and on the Board of the National Women in Business Summit (a conference led by Harvard's Women in Business.) 

SWIB held two state-wide business conferences last year, offering women insight into the world of social media and technology (a sector where women unfortunately do not have a strong footprint.) SWIB continues to stand out as the premier student organization at Stanford, having won the Dean's Award for excellence in contributing to student life. As a student, Anna was the Public Relations Chair for the Class of 2010 Student Cabinet and also Philanthropy Chair for the Delta Delta Delta Sorority where she spearheaded efforts in raising money for the St. Jude's Children's Hospital. Anna also has a background in the finance and consulting sector having interned with Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, The Albright Stonebridge Group, and City Light Capital. 

Anna's interest in the nonprofit space originates from her upbringing in Lahore, Pakistan where she volunteered at the SOS Children's Village for four years, teaching elementary math and english. She was raised to "give back intelligently," not only through money but also through her own skill set. This set of values fits in perfectly with Palindrome's mission.

Anna graduated from Stanford University with three degrees: a BA in Political Science, English Literature, and an Honors degree in Science, Technology & Society (with a focus in Entrepreneurship.)
