Three Month Check In

Now that I’ve reached the halfway point of my FMS placement, I thought it would be a good chance to list out some of the highlights of what I have been up to at Unitus Seed Fund since starting here:Unitus Seed Fund's Villgro Investor Award

  • USF announced two new investments into iStar and Jack on Block
  • USF won Villgro’s “Best Indian Investor” Award at the Sankalp Conference
  • USF announced the launch of a domestic impact equity seed fund in India, which received front page coverage in the Economic Times (India’s WSJ equivalent)
  • I’ve mentored and judged two entrepreneurship competitions: Dream:In‘s Next Dream Camp and TERI & The Acara Institute‘s Design for Sustainability Challenge
  • I am a founding member of TiE Bangalore‘s Social Enterprise group and Acumen Fund’s Bangalore chapter
  • I helped vet and recruit companies for Village Capital’s Technology for Impact Accelerator which is currently running in Ahmedabad
  • I attended TEDxBangaloreChange, one of Social Venture Partners‘ Bangalore partner meetings, the Sankalp Unconvention Summit, and a Pecha Kucha event on Trash
  • I’ve scouted over 300 Indian social enterprises and discovered an active social entrepreneurship and impact investing community in Bangalore
