Board of Directors
Sanket Karuri is the Chief Product Officer at Beam, where he helps local governments administer public benefits programs quickly, equitably, and effectively. Under his leadership, Beam has scaled their platform to support over 150 local and state governments, universities, and CBOs in administering over $250M dollars in assistance to hundreds of thousands of households across America. Sanket’s career started in the research of poverty, delving deeply into its societal and personal harms, and has extended to building products that fight poverty at a systemic level. He most recently ran Product for the College Board’s BigFuture Scholarship program, which supported more than 3 million students by providing large dollar scholarship incentives to drive quality college matriculation. When he’s not trying to improve access to the safety net, Sanket is likely hiking, biking, or cooking.
