If Rishi Navani were a fashion designer, his name would probably be Armani.
Why? Simply because when it comes to the investment sector, he leads the way.
And then a whole bunch of people follow in his footsteps.
But don't take our word for it, just take a look at all the man has done.
Rishi has been investing in India since 1996.
(Unlike all the johnnies-come-lately, who've just jumped on the India band-wagon.)
As we speak, he's the co-founder and Managing Director of Matrix India.
In earlier days, he was the main man (read Managing Director) at Sequoia Capital India where he pretty much did it all, to get things going.
He has worked at Apax Partners, Indocean Ventures, an affiliate of Soros Fund Management and JP Morgan Partners based in Mumbai. While Rishi doesn't drop names, we have no compunctions about doing so on his behalf, and telling you he also pulled a stint as management consultant at A.T. Kearney and McKinsey & Co.
Today, Rishi is on the board of directors of several companies, some of which, read asklaila and seventymm.
Rishi has also previously invested in Firstsource (BSE: FSL), Indecomm Global Services, Jamdat Mobile (JMDT, acquired by Electronics Arts), Nazara and Zayata (acquired by Apollo Health Street).
As you can see, Rishi is certainly not a fashion designer.
But he's definitely the kind of suit we appreciate having on our board.
