We held our Investor Conference at the Sofitel Hotel in Mumbai, on the 11th of March 2016.

The conference was a huge success with over 150 industry luminaries and CEOs attending. We were privileged to have with us our Investors, who are India’s most marquee institutions, our Advisors, who are shaping corporate India, and our Portfolio companies, who are dominating markets that they operate in.

In addition to our presentation on exciting transformational trends that we are backing and updates by our portfolio companies on their progress and strategy for the future, we had two brilliant key notes. Our Advisor, Dr. Ajai Kumar, Founder of HCG, South Asia’s largest cancer care provider and a frequent speaker at global medical conferences, spoke on ‘Aiming for Immortality through Genomics’. Dr. Devdutt Pattanaik, a renowned author, speaker and mythologist, spoke on ‘Happiness’.
