  • Vishesh Rajaram

    Principal, Ventureast

    Vishesh has been with Ventureast since early 2007, managing investments of the Proactive Fund. He has seen over a hundred proposals, and has collaborated in six investments in consumer internet, infrastructure, mobile value added services, industrial enzymes, semiconductors, direct marketing and consumer loyalty management spaces. His prior experiences, in corporate banking with ICICI Bank, and in the Assurance and Business Advisory practice of PricewaterhouseCoopers has given him a solid base to build his deal flow network. His debt portfolio at ICICI Bank was in the range of $50 million.

    Vishesh has spearheaded a strategic acquisition for a portfolio company, helps in business development and business networking, and advises in routine as well as strategic financial matters. He was instrumental in Vysr, a web services portfolio company, gaining access to Indian internet firms, and in leveraging the India advantage.

    As an entrepreneur prior to joining Ventureast, Vishesh took over the management and turned around a distressed specialty chemicals business, which he later exited by selling to a leading Italian chemicals company.
