Nikhil Bhojwani

Managing Partner
Recon Strategy

Nikhil Bhojwani is a Managing Partner at Recon Strategy, a consulting firm that he co-founded in 2010. Recon’s clients include health systems, provider organizations, payers, life-science firms, digital health firms, and non-profits. While most of these clients are large incumbent players, the firm sets aside 25% of its capacity for early-stage companies, and Nikhil stays close to the startup community as an investor, board member, and/or advisor to several companies. These include CIC-Health, a national leader in COVID testing and vaccinations, which was founded based on a blueprint set out in an HBR article Nikhil co-authored with HSPH professor, Dr. Atul Gawande. Nikhil was the 2023 Dorothy Eisenberg Visiting Professor of Surgery Innovation at Harvard Medical School/ Brigham and Women’s Hospital and is co-leading a webinar series on responsible AI in healthcare for Harvard Business School’s D^3 Institute.

Prior to starting Recon, Nikhil spent several years at The Boston Consulting Group, where he worked on strategy, organization, and operational topics for a range of healthcare organizations. Before that he worked in the publishing and media business in India, during which time, he co-authored an award-winning book, wrote a regular column for a leading newspaper, and developed and taught a semester-long course at two business schools.

Nikhil recently completed a 4-year stint as a Boston board member at the non-profit TiE, the largest network of entrepreneurs in the world. He is also on the board of Reimagining Migration, a non-profit working to improve the experience of immigrant children in schools and in society. 

He holds a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Mathematics from St. Stephen’s College, Delhi University and an MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, both with honors.
