Karan Shanmugarajah, Founder of WealthKernel

“We got access to mentors, experienced founders, and Google employees who provided valuable support and expertise to help us scale. Campus has broadened my horizons as an entrepreneur – it opened my eyes to everything I didn’t know but needed to. It really fosters your growth, and meeting people from all walks of life adds to that."

Karan arrived in Canada as a five-year-old war refugee from Sri Lanka and began his entrepreneurial career as a paperboy. Inspired by a high school mentor who taught him how to invest, he went on to become an analyst with Barclays in London.But Karan wanted to fix the inefficiencies he saw in the finance industry. He left his job, joined the Campus London community, and started WealthKernel – a platform helping banks serve customers in a more simple and cost-effective way.

During the six-month Campus Residency program, Karan grew his team by 40%, raised £90K in additional capital, and completed a live trade in the financial markets, a real milestone for the platform they had been building. Since then, WealthKernel have launched a new consumer product, WealthSmart, a new online investment tool, and continues to grow.
