Romish Badani is Bridge’s CEO and co-founder and has led the company since its inception. He first witnessed the complexity of the immigration process through the turbulent United States immigration journeys of various family members. But it wasn’t until he helped build and scale various technology companies that he had his light-bulb moment: Technology has the power to transform dysfunctional professional services industries, and few verticals are as broken and important as immigration. He teamed up with Forrest Blount, a former Google engineer and workflow automation expert, and Bridge was born. Under Romish’s leadership Bridge has become a clear industry leader, marrying technology and human expertise to drive a frictionless immigration experience
Romish has almost 15 years of experience growing innovative, market-leading companies across the technology and professional services industries. Prior to Bridge, Romish helped scale ZocDoc, a leading online healthcare marketplace. Previously, he was a private equity investor at TPG Capital and an investment banker at Goldman Sachs. Romish holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BS in Business Administration from the University of California, Berkeley.
