Karthik Puvvada (KP)

Founder. Creator. Coach.

I'm Karthik Puvvada, often called 'KP' by friends and my audience on the Internet. Currently, I am leading Founder Relations at a global fintech startup Paddle (last valued at $1.4B) helping create and run founder-facing educational and community programs. My main focus is running Paddle’s accelerator program called AI Launchpad that helped over 187 startups from 68 countries build, launch and grow software businesses.

Before that, I was the founder & CEO of Build In Public Fellowship, an ed-tech startup that offered online programs and community to helped 100s of early stage founders overcome growth and product challenges.

I also co-founded 2 SaaS startups and over 15 side-hustles since 2018 all in public. I started a business podcast the “Build In Public Podcast” and interviewed ambitious founders & CEOs like Gary Vee, Alexis Ohanian Sr.

I was awarded “Community Member of the Year (2022)” by Product Hunt as I became a Top Hunter on the platform helping ~95 startups with their go-to-market launch campaigns. (Interested to collab with me? DM me)

I’m one of the strongest evangelists of the “building in public” movement that is helping founders attract early customers & investors by sharing their journey online as it unfolds.

Previously, I helped over 500 founders globally take a shot on their dreams and kickstart businesses through education programs and communities resulting in $1.25m in revenue. Led high-profile positions as a director at startups like On Deck (funded by Founders Fund) and Day One (funded by Gary Vee).

Welcome to my personal website where I share hand-picked resources, ideas and insights from my journey and experiences to help founders and creators.
