Prior to Multiples, I had a private equity stint at ICICI Venture where I discovered my passion for investing. In addition, I worked with CRISIL, an S&P Company and with SBI Capital Markets, both of which gave me a peek into the inner workings of the Indian debt market.
In 2010, I was one of the first few members to join Multiples and it has been a transformative journey, both professionally and personally. I have seen the organization grow from a young ‘start-up’ to becoming one of the most respected private equity firms in India today. The great thing about working at Multiples is the people around you, who come with very rich experience and are generous when it comes to sharing their learnings. I believe this collaborative approach is what makes Multiples unique and is an enduring foundation for its future.
I love the constant learning that comes with the private equity career and the opportunity of meeting sometime maverick, mostly successful and almost always courageous entrepreneurs. During my investing career, I have had the opportunity of investing in some very interesting companies which were at different stages of their evolution. I value the relationships I have built and my constant endeavor is to create an impact by being a true partner to these entrepreneurs.
When I am not working, I love spending time with my family, particularly with my young son. I enjoy reading – history, business, poetry, and being a brainstorming partner to some of my friends’ startups.
