HOW IT BEGAN
I grew up in a salaried, middle class home in Uttar Pradesh, where career preferences were for the ‘secure’ multinational jobs and entrepreneurship was frowned upon. Deep within though, I fancied a future to be on my own feet as an employment creator, held back only by a fear of its uncertain success. I spent 10 years in the corporate banking world, working in high responsibility roles In banks such as HDFC bank, ICICI bank and Cholamandalam DBS. Finally, in 2008, I let my growing confidence and ambition become the wind beneath my wings and decided to start Capital9. An effort to transform every dream to reality of both ours and the clients we choose to serve.
WHAT INSPIRES ME
It may sound cliched, but my work is my inspiration – each client, their way of functioning, their challenges and strategies come together to create success stories that amaze, teach and inspire. Each of them is a dreamer and achiever in their own fields. Their ability to convert our capital to their success is always highly motivating.
There is no substitute for hard work
If we carry out our business in an ethical manner, sky is the limit.
MY BIGGEST LEARNING
There is no substitute for hard work and honesty. If we carry out business in an ethical manner with transparency, sky is the limit. Client interest first has always been our approach and this continuously drives us on a day-to-day basis.
I aspire to make Capital9 a name to reckon with in the field of financial advisory across India. With government initiatives for Make-in-India, Indian economy is poised to grow exponentially in years to come. We would like to contribute our bit to the nation by providing capital at the right cost, right time and right structure to budding entrepreneurs.
