Starting October 2023, I joined Multiples as a Senior Advisor. I am based in Palo Alto and my role includes originating and evaluating new investment opportunities, bringing a global perspective to emerging investment areas, leveraging my network in the US and scouting for inorganic opportunities for portfolio companies. I collaborate closely with our investment teams and portfolio companies. My key sectors of interest include technology and cleantech.
I have spent ~30 years as a principal investor and investment banker. My investment banking career over close to 15 years was with JP Morgan, CSFB and UBS in India, Asia-Pac and the US. My private equity experience in growth equity and special situations investments in India were at leadership roles at ICICI Venture and JPMorgan Special Opportunities Group; followed by Venture Advisor/Partner to select VC and PE firms in the US including advising select start-ups.
While remaining India first, Multiples is keen to explore investment opportunities and linkages in the US where there is an India advantage. I will also be supporting portfolio companies to extend their offerings as they seek organic and inorganic growth opportunities. Multiples believes that setting up this US footprint is an important step in its evolution. I am very excited to help drive this important journey for Multiples.
My Ikigai is to remain a student and a learner. Reading and travel are passions. I enjoy the outdoors especially tennis, swimming, running and hiking.
