I believe Life is a journey with problems to solve and lessons to learn but most of all, experiences to enjoy.
Developing With a Passion While Exploring The World.
At Grip Invest, I have the exciting opportunity to contribute my unique background and skills to build India’s best Alternative Investment Platform. With a strong understanding of business models and track record of delivering results, I’ve co-led in building Grip Connect (B2B) product from scratch, implementing Smart Chat Bot, streamlining user communication, and many other projects.
Before this, I pursued an MBA at NMIMS, Mumbai, which provided me with a solid foundation in strategic thinking and business acumen. During MBA, I was leading a team of 30 members as President of Ecolibria and have also participated and won several National level case competitions.
Prior to my MBA, I worked as a Web developer at Bank of America, where I honed my technical skills and developed a keen attention to detail. This experience taught me the importance of crafting high-quality products that meet user needs. I have also received Global Recognition Silver and Bronze award for showing commitment and ownership towards the work.
My passion for startups and business models has been a driving force throughout my journey. I actively research and write about these topics on Medium and LinkedIn, constantly expanding my knowledge and staying ahead of industry trends.
Skills in Progress
Expertise I have gained and still developing to become competent Product Manager
Through internships and various competitions, I am trying to:
Understand the goals of the different products for both the company and the customer
Evaluate the underserved pain points and possible reasons behind them and how products can be improved
Working on side project to solve pain point of financial literacy
Read blogs and books like Hooked, Inspired, etc.
Around 6 years ago, I read the book “How to win friends and influence people”, which taught me many lessons. Since then, I became a dedicated lifelong learner in developing People Skills.
From managing events in VIT to a team of 45+ members in NMIMS, this journey is making me into a more confident and social person.
Being an active member of Toastmasters International in BofA and now NMIMS, is further enhancing my communication skills.
Engineering and then developing websites at BofA have helped me strengthen my problem-solving skills.
I am able to leverage this skill in academics, extracurricular activities and competition to come up with feasible and data backed solutions.
I have interviewed more than 70 users on various occasions (internships, competition and projects) to understand their pain points, existing solutions they are using, market gaps and how those gaps can be filled leveraging technology with feasibility and viability.
Coming from Marwari Business family, I exposed to many dinner table business lessons while conversing with family.
While working closely at CampusVeda, I got a more holistic view of how a new age startup works: By being resourceful and taking pragmatic business decisions.
