Poornima Vijayashanker,

Poornima was a founding engineer at, taking the product from prototype to launch, and then eventually being acquired by Intuit. She initially came up with the name and helped Aaron build the prototype. After Mint was acquired by Intuit, Poornima decided it was time to go from being a founding engineer to a founder! She started BizeeBee, out of a passion for yoga, which grew out of a 6 year practice. BizeeBee helps fitness businesses with customer management, and currently services private instructors and studios around the country. Most recently, Poornima has been invited to teach as a visiting professor at Duke University’s Pratt School of Engineering. Â
