I have always work at the intersection of brand, design and technology.
A closet geek, I started my career with Infosys when they were just starting up. I was one of two partners at Ray+Keshavan, the country’s leading brand and design consultancy, before its acquisition by WPP-owned Brand Union.Â I’ve had the privilege of creating brands like Airtel, Kotak Bank, Mother Dairy, Titan, Arvind, Fortis, Max, Aditya Birla Capital, Vistara Airlines and many more.Â Because I’ve always wanted to develop a product, I co-founded KineticGlue, a social enterprise platform that was acquired by BMC Software in 2013. I was then part of the founding team at Varana, a luxury fashion brand that aims to take Indian craft and design techniques to a global market (www.varanaworld.com)Â I am also an active angel investor and advisor with Kstart, Kalaari Capital’s seed stage fund.
