The relevance of Venture Capital for Indian startups in this decade, excites me the most. Being able to be at the centre of this development, here at Kalaari, I am excited to interact with founders, hear their story first hand and work with them to build unicorns
Vinesh joined Kalaari in 2021 and is a Venture Capital Fellow in the Investment Team. He loves speaking to entrepreneurs who are building ventures with a specific focus in FinTech and SaaS. He is very keen on investing in entrepreneurs that are building products for the ~450M Gen-Z and Millennials in India. He believes that the wave of digitisation in India will be led by the startups that will eventually become the Facebook and Apple of the world, and is very optimistic of partnering with such founders early in their journey.
Prior to this, Vinesh spent a year at TresVista in Mumbai and London where he was an Investment Banking Analyst in the Natural Resources team. He started his career at PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) in Mumbai where he had a brief stint in the Technology Consulting practice. He also co-founded a sports development start-up at the age of 19, that helped me understand the ground realities of running a bootstrapped venture.
Outside of work, you would often find him involved in philanthropist initiatives and discussing on what could be the next $1B opportunity.
