I Care About


Income inequality

Children's rights and safety

I am deeply cognizant about "Privilege" and how it shape one's trajectory in life as compared to others. I also make it a point to raise awareness about this aspect in any and every network possible. If we accept the benfits of "Privilege", we can be sensitive about it and work towards ensuring that less privileged folks have a better shot at life. Life is unfair, let's take a fair shot at it. 


Premji Invest (Oct 2016 - present)

I work as Principal in Premji Invest Private Equity. As part of my job, I evaluate businesses from investing perspective. I understand businesses through (1) numbers (financials), (2) people (grilling founders / promoters), (3) touch & feel (field visits) and (4) thought experiments (secret sauce ;)).
