Board Member | Chief Operating Officer | Startup Advisor/Coach/Mentor
I've helped build several social impact startups in their early stages that have grown to deliver large-scale global impact. Dlight's solar lights have impacted 100+million people, Embrace's infant warmer helped 300,000+ babies, and Chirag has illuminated 500+ villages.
My ventures have been featured or awarded by Wall Street Journal, The Economist, CNBC, Forbes, BBC, CNN, USA Today, ET, and numerous other organizations across the world.
I’m an alumnus of the Harvard Business School and The University of Iowa.
• Started my first business at age 18 with $25, assembling computers in my garage, achieved $100,000 sales by the 3rd year, sold the business to pursue an MBA in the US
• Post-MBA led my family businesses from 2000 to 2008; conceptualized and built a "first of its kind" integrated polymer film based resin-to-product manufacturing facility in India, achieved a 20X increase in revenue
• In 2008, I found my "purpose" in for-profit social entrepreneurship; since then played pivotal roles in building several high-impact social ventures
