Archana's path to co-founding MyCityWay started with a long-standing passion for developing unique technology that can be put to practical use. NYC Way was created after her spending years in New York City running to catch the train, scrolling through hundreds of restaurant recommendations, and stepping outside to find the weather ten degrees colder than it appeared. Archana has held senior technology roles with Wall Street firms including Standard & Poors, JPMorgan Chase and Citigroup. It was her entrepreneurial spirit that was a key factor in bringing MyCityWay to the world - to change the way people interacted with the vibrant cities they lived in.
