Anu Atluru

👋 Hey, I’m Anu — I’m a startup builder, angel investor, and writer.

I’m currently building new things, advising, and investing in early-stage startups.

I love consumer — especially social, media, gaming, marketplaces, work, and wellness.

About Me

Previously, I spent 2 years at Clubhouse — built zero to one, served as the first Head of Community, and grew from a team of 3 to 100+.

I’m also an M.D. — previously a resident physician in Emergency Medicine at Harvard / Mass General Hospital and a women’s health tech startup founder.

I love creative arts — I’ve dabbled in writing, film, fashion, music & comedy. I stayed in school at The University of Texas and Harvard Business School.

Notes & details
  • We're using the quote block to create the fixed navbar instead of an ID, so it should work out of the box, but that means you can't really use the Notion quote block anywhere else throughout this template. Thinking of better ways to go about this!
  • The navbar & footer are global Notion blocks, meaning if you edit the ones on the template home page, it'll carry the changes over to the Blog + Contact + post pages.
