What motivates you?

Having joined early stage companies across multiple industries and being part of their growth journey has been an exciting phase for me throughout my career. Continuous learning new business models and best practices keeps me yearning for more.

What’s been the steepest learning curve on your career journey so far?

From being a professionally qualified bean counter to being a Business Partner has been a great learning curve that has spanned 25 years of my corporate life. Entrepreneurship over the last 5 years or so has been a great teacher and has helped me see things from a founders point of view; being a sounding board to management teams and helping them solve day to day business issues.

If you could give a piece of advice to your 20-year-old self, what would it be?

Ideate and be an entrepreneur early in life. 

What is the company you wish you’d backed and why?

Indiamart – The founders have been able to build a B2B market place with a rock solid foundation and at the same time created a profitable business model. A true “Made in India” Unicorn.
