What’s the most rewarding aspect of the job you do?
It is rewarding for me to work with founders, and help them in creating life-altering products and services. The most rewarding for me is the chance to learn from great minds (founders) who are turning their dreams into reality.

What business sectors are you most interested in?
Ed-Tech. I believe technology has barely scratched the surface when it comes to education. We have seen digitization in the last few years but disruption in the space has been limited. I also believe ed-tech has the potential to not only make big companies but also create an impact that can change millions of lives across the planet.

What qualities do you most admire in other people?
To me it is perseverance as whatever we do is not a sprint but a marathon. I believe that is true for life, our startups, and our jobs. If you don’t succeed once, learn from the failure and try again.

What’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not working?
I love football. If I am not working then I would mostly be playing or watching a game. I also love to watch documentaries and read interesting non-fiction content.
