Kishor (Kish) Rao has been in the technology space for over 25 years. Graduated from Carnegie Mellon with a Math/Comp Sci degree as well as getting an MS in Software Engineering at Penn State. I dabbled in rental property investing in the early 2000s. But I didn’t get the “itch” until 2018. I bought two rental properties, was a private lender, and was an LP on a couple of syndications.
As a board member of the GOB Network, I’m looking to skyrocket my real estate career by becoming a GP and a thought leader in the space. I truly enjoy helping people grow and seeing them fulfill their dreams.
