Rajiv Bhateja

Co-Founder

Rajiv first became involved in U.S. politics in 2004. He volunteered for the first Obama campaign in 2008, co-founded Silicon Valley Courageous Resistance in January 2017 and They See Blue® in July 2018. He serves on TSB's National Strategy Team and helps coordinate its technology and data management activities.

 

Rajiv grew up in Bangalore, India, and earned a bachelor of technology from Indian Institute of Technology, Bombay.

As a teenager, Rajiv spent three months hitchhiking by himself through Afghanistan, Iran, Turkey and most of Western Europe, all the way to Umeå in northern Sweden. Rajiv enjoys hiking and loves sculpture. His car automatically shuts off whenever he passes by a French bakery.

Sunil Mehta

Co-Founder

Sunil had been blissfully living and working in Silicon Valley (while staying clear of politics) for more than three decades when the unthinkable happened in the November 2016 election. This spurred him to get involved in the ground game of politics for the first time in his life.  He shared the details of his journey into activism in a Medium article, which was published in June 2018, shortly before he co-founded They See Blue in his backyard with like-minded friends.

 

Sunil grew up in Bombay, India, and earned his bachelor’s degree in engineering at IIT-Bombay. He moved to the U.S. in 1980 for graduate school and received advanced engineering degrees from Penn State and MIT. After completing graduate studies in 1984, he started his first job with Intel in the San Francisco Bay Area, where he has lived ever since. He has worked in the semiconductor industry for more than 38 years in both technical and management roles, and still enjoys being a part of this exciting industry. He has authored 18 publications and holds 92 U.S. patents.

 

Besides the full-time high-tech job and political activism, Sunil likes to spend time on other various interests. He is a movie buff (both Hindi and English films), an aficionado of Hindi film songs and a voracious reader of books and comics. Over the past year, Sunil has been spending much of his spare time building a blogging/reference website encompassing his various interests. He hopes to complete the website and make it public by the end of 2022.
