Leap Scholar, Leap Finance

I'm a second-time entrepreneur with a Venture Capital stint in the middle. Currently building Leap, a Sequoia India-backed (Series D) startup. Leap Finance helps Indian students pursuing International graduate degrees by offering them innovative products. We have built a suite of products for the 'study abroad' segment. In other words, we are a student community accelerating the international education dream. Previously, I built gozoomo, a peer-to-peer automobile exchange which raised $7M from SAIF Partners and Apoletto (Billionaire Yuri Milner's private fund). Worked with SAIF Partners as a Venture Capital investor where I focused on consumer internet investing (e-commerce, education, consumer logistics, automotive).SAIF Partners is India's leading Venture Capital fund with an enviable portfolio (Paytm, Swiggy, Meesho, Unacademy, Urbanclap, Justdial, Makemytrip, NSE).Deal list during SAIF -> Meesho (Series A), Unacademy ( Series B), Inyda/Faballey (Series B). I spend my time on Business Models, Product Management and Organisation Building.I read about Entrepreneurship, Growth Marketing, Economics and FinanceI am always looking to connect with company builders and product builders.
