Pradeep Elankumaran is a co-founder and CEO of Farmstead. Prior to Farmstead, he spent many years starting and running design and operations-focused consumer technology products — he led mobile video monetization and Livetext at Yahoo, led the driver growth product team at Lyft and also co-founded the YC-backed mobile photo-sharing product Kicksend (acquired by Lyft).
