Nick Ganju ’08BUS is a founder at Zocdoc and leads strategic initiatives that address some of the company’s most impactful opportunities. He helped build Zocdoc because he believes that the power of technology can bring about a more efficient healthcare system. He has extensive experience in product development, database management and site architecture, including having personally built the earliest iterations of Zocdoc and directly overseeing its development for many of its first years.

Prior to Zocdoc, Nick worked as the CTO of cfX, where he oversaw the design and implementation of financial software used by several Fortune 100 Wall Street firms. A Trilogy Development Alumnus, Nick previously lived in Silicon Valley. There, he played a pivotal role in the architecture and development of eBoodle (later acquired by BizRate), and in 2002 founded his first company, called Mixonic. He remained at Mixonic as the architect, manager, and lead programmer until moving to New York.

Nick was awarded an MBA from Columbia Business School in 2008. He also has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. He first met Zocdoc founder Cyrus Massoumi when the two shared a desk at Trilogy Software.

Nick was born and raised in Chicago, and currently resides in New York. When he’s not working, the former Bay Area Amateur Billiards Champion can be found fronting his semi-professional cover band.
