Why Elevar?

I have always had a fundamental belief that my work should have a tangible impact on society. I believe working at Elevar, with its strong investment thesis and customer-centric approach, will help me do meaningful work that is larger than myself and has a substantial impact on the world that we live in.

What are your reflections on the nature of entrepreneurship?

There are many ‘small ideas’ that have impacted our world in a major way. These ‘small ideas’, however, don’t just come into existence, but instead come from the focused and dedicated work of individuals understanding the priorities, aspirations, and challenges of society. They proceed to painstakingly design solutions that have the power to grow exponentially and impact millions of lives. Entrepreneurship has given us the ability to harness the potential of such ideas and create meaningful impact.

What is a good day at work for you?

A good day at work for me involves diving into a dynamic environment where challenges spark my creativity and involve pushing boundaries to make a meaningful difference to our goals.

What are things you will be caught doing outside of work?

Working out and a variety of outdoor activities like running and trekking.
