Biography

I am a Venture Capitalist based in Menlo Park, CA, focusing on early stage investments in consumer internet, enterprise software, mobile services and clean technologies. I also invest in India and spend some of my time there.

I am originally from India, having grown up in Bhopal and New Delhi. After graduating from the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kanpur, I came to Cornell for a graduate degree in Computer Science.

Since then, I've worked in the Bay Area at companies big (Oracle, http://www.oracle.com) and small (Corio, http://www.corio.com). I've also been an entrepreneur and helped start two companies, one of which, Ojos (http://www.riya.com) has just launched in Alpha and is wowing early adopters: http://www.wired.com/news/technology/0,1282,69514,00.html?tw=wn_story_mailer
