Member at Angel Capital Association, Westchester Angels, American Waterworks Association, Water Environment Federation, New York Bio and New York Academy of Sciences.. An Impact Investor in disruptive technologies to bring about a social change and the founder of S CAP NYC with nearly 15 years of financial experience focusing on Food, Life Science and Environmental Science, I believe in impact investing & partnering with technologies to bring about a social change. This journey began with MetLife that led to managing investments at banks like ABN AMRO, RBS and ANZ for High Net worth Individuals & Institutions. The transition to Social Entrepreneurship began with a couple of angel investments, I realised problems in the way we diagnose & treat diseases and identified the importance of healthy eating and drinking clean water. From thereon Impact Investing became my focal point of interest. By combining my banking experience with a life long passion for science, I chose to be the change by investing to start S CAP. Originally from India, I moved to Singapore and finally to New York, to “ Make a Living, Not a Killing” in the Impact Investing world. Today, I invest & partner with growth stage companies in Food, Life Science & Clean Tech to bring about a social change using Impact Investing. I also believe in creating sustainable jobs for Millenials as part of the solution. That’s why the S CAP Millennial Program is important in Food, Life Science & Clean Tech.
