Vaishak Prashanth

Vaishak looks at opportunities across sectors, with an inclination toward social and SaaS.

He’s excited to partner with entrepreneurs going after open-ended opportunities with unique market insights and a focus on building a sustainable, scalable culture. He believes that we are witnessing a once-in-a-lifetime shift in the way the world functions, powered by rapid advances in technology.

Prior to IndiaQuotient, he worked at McKinsey & Company as a consultant, where he worked on engagements primarily in the TMT sector. He has also spent time across multiple stages of investing (Sofina Investments, Stakeboat Capital, RTP Global) and was a software development engineer (Intuit) before his MBA (PGP) from IIM-Ahmedabad.

Being a true-blue Bangalore boy, Vaishak can be found exploring the latest microbreweries and dosa outlets around town on the weekends after catching the latest Chelsea match.
