Neelan Choksi

President and COO



Choksi is president and COO of Tasktop Technologies, the leader in Software Lifecycle Integration (SLI) and developer productivity solutions. At Tasktop he oversees daily operations and manages sales, business development and marketing.


MIT Blackjack Reunion Panel

Choksi has made a name for himself in the technology industry by accelerating growth and building great software companies. Little did he know that the skills and understanding of human nature that he acquired as a part of the infamous MIT Blackjack Team would be applicable to management, competition and bootstrapping – and ultimately be instrumental in the success of his career. During this panel, Choksi will join former MIT blackjack team members Semyon Dukach, angel investor; Jon Hirschtick, founder of SolidWorks; and Bill Kaplan, CEO of FreshAddress, to discuss how they applied lessons from their blackjack-playing days to influence the way they work and play.
