Managing Partner
Unicorn India Ventures

I am Managing Partner at Unicorn India Ventures, an SEBI approved venture fund under AIF-I Category. The investment thesis of the Fund is to invest in incubation stage, accelerator stage, seed stage, start-up stage, early stage and growth stage companies in India with focus on Social Media, Mobile, Analytics & Cloud (SMAC), IOT and Fintech.

Prior to setting up the Fund, I was heading operations at Mumbai Angels and Bangalore Angels, leading Angel Investment forums in India as President. My experience also includes corporate management functions in medium and large organizations, investment in start-ups, project management, joint ventures and business development.

After heading a branch office at Century Rayon, a B.K. Birla Group Company, I moved to Business Access India Pvt. Ltd. providing consulting services to Scandinavian companies from diverse sectors establishing their presence in the Asian markets. Then moved to Transasia Biomedical Ltd., India’s largest manufacturer and exporter of bio-medical equipment. Prior to joining Mumbai Angels, I headed new projects and made investments in start-ups with Artheon Group, a Telecom, IT & Energy group.

I had helped in closing approximately 60 start-up deals with over INR 100 cr investment and has served on the Board of 5 companies and is involved with various incubation centres as a mentor in India and outside India. I am fairly in-grooved within the start-up fraternity and regularly advises entrepreneurs for strategic direction. Mentoring startups is my passion and I also advises Governmental and industrial bodies on the same.

I am regular speaker at both domestic and International circuit on startups and early stage investment.
