Peakperformer is on a mission to democratise leadership coaching for managers at all levels and help them build behavioural skills in an engaging, measurable and continuous manner. This digital coaching platform enables organisations to create strong leaders at all career levels.

Every CXO and leadership team needs to learn how to coach and groom their up-and-coming managers. Subject matter expertise doesn’t necessarily translate into managerial skills, and most companies are aware that gaps in leadership skills among rising managers can lead to long-term financial losses. Peakperformer coaches employees on management, creative and communication skills through remote one-on-one sessions which aim to result in measurable improvement in profits, customer satisfaction and people utilisation. Curated mentoring topics include Uncertainty and Decision Making, Ownership and Responsibility and Time Management amongst others. Peakperformer works with a range of companies including MPL, CRED, Pfizer and Societe Generale.

Peakperformer was founded in Bengaluru in September 2020 by repeat founders Aishwarya Goel and Nilesh Agarwal. Aishwarya, a second-time founder, started her first venture in the food space at the age of 19, which she grew to millions in annual sales and was later acquired. She became a founding team member at Trupay, where she built categories like government, healthcare and retail from scratch in the offline space, and later joined PhonePe, leading merchant acquisition and execution for all consumer to government related digital payment. Nilesh, also a second-time founder, previously worked as a software engineer at Amazon and Trilogy Group, where he played an instrumental role in building core infrastructure such as the multi-tenant system and ads automation. He also founded Codejudge Inc., a code-simulation platform for developers, and has also published a patent on Graph Technology used by Fortune 500 companies.
