After a long stint at Tata Steel in various roles, Hari spent the next 18 years with a string of five agile and high-growth start-ups. The four start-ups prior to BigBasket saw successful exits. Three of them are now Unicorns.
Hari is an angel investor, advisor and sounding board to numerous young entrepreneurs and startups. He straddles the entire start-up ecosystem from accelerators like Techstars and Silicon Road to a growth stage VC fund (The Fundamentum Partnership).
Hari is a prolific writer and has co-authored four books before this, the last being “Saying No to Jugaad – The Making of Bigbasket”. Hari has studied at IIT and IIM and worked at an executive level with multiple start-ups/scale-ups. His strength and passion is in scaling organizations through clear thinking and relentless execution. LinkedIn had identified me as the one of the Top Voices in India for three years in a row (2016, 2017, and 2018).
