For the last 15 years, I've had the rare fortune of working with world-class entrepreneurs in both the US and in India.
I am currently building Antler India as a General Partner and co-founder. I also head Antler’s Web3 initiatives globally.
I'm managing previously existing investments in a micro-VC portfolio of 40+ (FirstPrinciples.vc), backed by marquee investors, with multiple 10x markups. As part of this, I founded Incrypt Blockchain and have been very active in growing the Web3 ecosystem in India since 2017 via investments, community and national policy advisory.
My past experience includes being a founding principal at a $400M fund Lightbox (spun out of Kleiner Perkins & Sherpalo India portfolios), US venture investing at NEA and heading BD as an early employee at EverFi (one of the largest edtech networks globally).
