Huge macroeconomic tailwinds coupled with an extremely talented workforce have propelled India’s growth story. The startup ecosystem is at the forefront of this unprecedented growth and innovation that is taking place. Indian startups are today equipped to scale like never before and emerge as category leaders not only domestically but at a global level. India’s startup ecosystem’s moment has arrived and is here to stay for the long-haul.

The opportunity to partner with visionary founders creating game-changing companies is truly exciting. The emergence of new disruptive business models and innovative solutions to nuanced problems presents a huge opportunity for founders to capture and a steep learning curve for VC’s as they engage with the ecosystem.

Having worked previously with the Government of India on FDI, I have truly understood India’s USP and the underlying reasons behind its emergence as one of the world’s most preferred investment destinations. Moreover, having worked at a next half billion focused VC fund I have had the opportunity to work closely with founders creating scalable and impactful businesses. As a result, I’m excited to be a part of this terrific ecosystem as it scales new heights.

My personal interests include traveling and playing chess. Additionally, I enjoy reading philosophy books and have a keen interest in modern art.
