Sid is a Co-founder and Partner at Lightbox, a venture capital firm based out of India. Lightbox invests in emerging technology companies at an early stage. Prior to Lightbox, Sid founded Evolv, a vocational training company funded by Singapore Technologies. Over six years he built it into a business that trained 20,000+ people annually across 200 cities in South Asia and the Middle East. He sold it to NIIT in 2007 but continued to lead the internal teams in adopting new technology as a transformative force in education and vocational training.
An entrepreneur at heart, Sid left NIIT to get more involved in the start-up community in India. Over the next few years, leading up to Lightbox, Sid advised several startups, angel funds and a very special NGO called Magic Bus.
As enterprising at play as he is at work, Sid recently launched a new restaurant, The Hungry Monkey. Brown Paper Bag says "one step in and we realised, this was a hipster kid, the kind who'd look good on our instagram feed."
