about

Currently Head of Groupon APAC Emerging Markets, overlooking India, Indonesia, Thailand and Philippines

Was Venture Partner at Rocket Internet Gmbh. Founded in 2007 and headquartered in Berlin, Rocket supports internet startups in more than twenty countries around the world.

Was Co-founder of Accentium Web – an Internet products company formed by 3 of us (Vivek Pahwa – CEO, Umang Kumar and me)…all from the same MBA batch of ISB, Hyderabad. Exited the venture after 3.5 years in October 2010. Accentium had an exit through Gaadi.com

MBA from ISB, Hyderabad. One of the best years of my life – completely changed me!

MS degree from Michigan State in astrophysics. Wanted to be the first man on Mars at some point of time. And hey, who knows!

Graduated from Hindu College, Delhi University. Had the best time of my life there – met my wife there too…we knew each other for 7 years when we got married…

Was a consultant with A.T. Kearney, India for 3 years before plunging full-time into entrepreneurship! Had the most amazing time there…fantastic work…fantastic set of people…

In love with photography…am self taught and have a LONG way to go…have a digital library of over 23,000 photos, taken over 10 years! Shoot with a Nikon D7100

Consider joining ISB the riskiest and the best decision of my life…well…actually…coming back from the US would fall in the same category…

Love traveling…more so after getting married…cause of Ruchi…she loves it too…and plus…gives me an opportunity to shoot…try and take a vacation everymonth, even if it over a weekend itself

Love my work…cause of the fantastic team i work with…the nature of work we do…and the sheer ownership that having your own thing brings…

Hate politics driven on the basis of religion aka hate BJP. Dont find the congress a saint either…but definitely better…

Feel music is simply awesome as a concept…love to sing…though not many people know that and the ones who do possibly cant figure out why…LOVE DJing…and did it at ISB with utmost joy…would love to be a singer one day…or a DJ…but then ruchi sleeps early…and i wont go alone..!

Think the iPhone and the iPad is the best invention of mankind…after the toilet seat! Am addicted to it..much to Ruchi’s dismay and the sheer joy of my productivity god

…just another guy…
