The measure of who we are is how we react to something that does not go our way.

Having been an investor and operator for 20 years, I’ve experienced first-hand challenges that companies face as they scale! I decided to start my own entrepreneurial journey so that I could build my own team around shared values and better understand what our founders go through every day.and also share some sleepless nights

I believe in an action-oriented, candid and trust-based approach where we can talk about anything.   including my slight tendency to be late

Working with passionate teams and meeting inspiring founders is the best part of my day.

I am an intrepid adventurer and love most water sports involving wind & waves, as well as exploring new places with my partner.

Living life experientially!

Having dabbled in derivatives trading, investment banking and entrepreneurship, 15 years of experience has taught me the intricacies of building and scaling businesses.  being a consumer tech founder myself helped

I love working with founders who are solving exciting challenges and trying to realize their own vision. The highly energetic team at Venturi helps me constantly develop, evolve and grow.

I’m an unwavering dreamer, chasing what can be. A trained classical dancer and avid cyclist, you might find me exploring new hobbies when not working with our founders and teams.  evolution is the only constant as they say

Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. Love what you do, success will follow.

Surrounded by extraordinary entrepreneurs, inspiring colleagues and getting to know our well accomplished investors - being a part of Venturi since the beginning has been an incredible experience.  and at times a ride

My 14 years in fund management and extensive experience in emerging markets helps me in ensuring precision and efficiency on all operational fronts, and enabling the success of the team. I am determined and optimistic.occasionally spirited, some might say fiesty

Keeping active and exploring the outdoors with my family is my jam. And in better times - travelling, travelling travelling!   X 20
