I started my career in venture capital with IL&FS Venture corporation and moved on to being an investment banker focused on the tech space with Ernst & Young, where I drove several US sell side mandates in the IT services BPO and wireless sector.
In 2005 I joined Indiagames - a company that I had been involved with in the seed funding round and then as a banker leading the exit of the early investors to Tom online (a Hutchison group company).
As Chief Operating Officer of Indiagames I was responsible for strategy, operations and business of the company growing it from about $3m in gross sales to about a $60m in gross sales by 2012
Along the way the company pivoted a few times from a business and shareholder perspective coming under the UTV group in 2007.
In October 2012, along with the Founder of Indiagames and other key management, I led the sale of Indiagames to The Walt Disney Company in an all cash deal reported at a valuation between USD 80-100 m (http://bit.ly/XGz5Wv)
Thereafter I led Digital for the Disney group in India as (Jt) Managing Director - Digital with the responsibility of integrating the businesses of Indiagames, Disney Interactive and UTV Interactive
In December 2012 I decided to move on from Disney and spend time angel investing while I looking for the next venture that would consume me
In my new found free time I also invested heavily in my passion for motorcycling and refused treatment for technoholism.
Serendipity struck in mid 2013 when I met Shekhar Kapur and AR Rahman and ended up Co-Founding Qyuki.
