Rahul is the shopaholic in our team. Be it in the US, HK or Singapore, he always has a shopping list in hand. That must be the reason he is interested in retail space.
Rahul invests in technology companies in Retail, Education, Content and Payments space at Stellaris. He likes backing founders who are looking to make large impact in their customer’s lives. His firm belief is that Indian consumers and businesses deserve much better than current offerings in the market.
Prior to Stellaris, Rahul was a Partner at Helion, where he invested in companies like Shopclues, Bigbasket, Simplilearn and Livspace. Before he settled on investing, Rahul dirtied his hands in product management and consulting roles at Microsoft, MarketRx, i2 Technologies and BCG.
Rahul is an active sportsperson, with interests in badminton, tennis, table tennis and cricket. He loves watching movies, though not artsy ones. He always carries a book during his travels. Last we heard, the book is still waiting for him!
Rahul has a B. Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT Kanpur and an MBA from IIM Calcutta.
