I'm a huge fan of lists. So...
1. I'm passionate about emerging markets, circular economies, education models and women empowerment
2. I love working at unconventional intersections such as Finance & Fashion, Math & Dance and For-Profit & Social Inclusion
3. I recharge my brain cells by dancing, reading (current favorite- ‘Plato and a Platypus walk into a bar’) and obsessively following (and predicting) international politics

I currently help NGOs and social enterprises identify their needs by assessing their institutional maturity and life cycle stage. In addition, I identify and recommend appropriate innovative financing mechanisms that they can leverage more efficiently than traditional grants/debt. I am also in the process of setting up a sustainable fashion company with the aim of creating quality livelihoods for Indian tribes and rural communities (particularly women) by making contemporary western wear with an ethnic touch.

I have developed a strong expertise in finance and strategy by holding diverse roles across multiple businesses in GE over 2.5 years. Prior to my MBA at IIM Bangalore, I worked with my family business, a leading exporter in the Indian market. It was here that I learnt my most valuable skills of perseverance and having an eye for the crucial tiny details.

Key words that have been used to describe me are Assertive, Curios, Fast, Ingenious and Fun!
