I have over 20 years of international experience in product strategy, product management and business development, but my true passion is helping startups succeed and building thriving communities.

My dream is to turn Hyderabad into one of the leading startup cities in the world, and that vision led to the creation of the T-Hub Foundation in partnership with the Government of Telangana. I have a strong knowledge of and connection to the startup landscape in India, including incubators, accelerators, seed funds, angel networks, VCs, and other startup ecosystem players.

I am an angel investor, and Hyderabad Director for the Founder Institute, the world’s largest entrepreneur training & startup launch program. I sit on the Executive Council of the IIIT-H Foundation, the Industry Advisory Board for the Centre for Management Studies, NALSAR University of Law, and serve as Mentor and Advisor to many other organizations and startups.

I love getting to know what makes people tick, and encourage everyone to live their dreams!
