He also was an early investor in Hester Biosciences, an animal health company that has subsequently gone public. Gandhi frequently appears on CNBC and MSNBC to discuss business and politics, and he is a contributing writer for Entrepreneur Magazine and Fortune Magazine. He holds bachelor’s degrees in accounting and finance from the College of Business at the University of Illinois, an MBA from Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University, and is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA). Gandhi serves on the Board of Directors of Hester Biosciences, City Year Chicago, and is a member of the Young Presidents’Organization.
