What are the big questions that motivate you and drive your work?

My singular focus is on sustainability – on how I can best contribute, as a real estate investor, in making our built environment more resilient and adaptable.

What's your line of work?

Investing in sustainable real estate and in technology solutions that enable a greener built environment.

What changes or contribution do you hope to make with your work?

Developing methodologies for greening our buildings at pace and at scale by adopting agile processes and investing in innovative solutions.

How did you get here? What was your journey?

My scenic journey as a life-long entrepreneur began when I was 11 -  my first start-up was a books and vinyl records library in our small apartment in Mumbai. Since then I have set up several successful business in Africa, Europe and the UK. What I have enjoyed most is the multiplier effect of business – the ability to support and give a leg up to many others along the way.
