Tantu has close to three years of experience in legal transactional work, focused mainly on private equity and venture capital investments across a wide variety of sectors. He has acted for some well known private equity funds in their investments and exits from portfolio companies. He also has experience in banking and project finance transactions.

Tantu has a B.B.A. and L.L.B (Hons.) degree from the Jindal Global Law School. He was selected for a semester exchange program at the Southampton Law School, United Kingdom, which earned him the opportunity to study International Commercial Law, Insurance Law and Intellectual Property Rights from professors who are leading authorities in these fields.

Tantu is an avid sportsman and history buff. In his free time, he loves traveling, exploring new cuisines and watching movies from all over the world.

Why Elevar?

The idea of a confluence where my area of expertise, company law, meets investing that has an immediate impact on millions fascinates me and provides me with a purpose to wake up and head to work with zest every morning. 

What are the most and least favorite parts of your job?

Connecting the dots, working along with multiple stakeholders from various areas of expertise for finding solutions and keeping the needle moving is the favorite part of my job. There is no least favorite part as such, except for having to learn new work and collaboration tools, which is part and parcel of adjusting in a new workplace.

What is a good day at work like for you?

Fruitful meetings and multiple ticks on my to-do list.

If you weren’t working at Elevar what would you be doing for a living?

I would have either been a professor or followed my passion for movies and become a filmmaker.

How is Elevar different from the jobs you’ve done before?

There is a lot of life and passion in the work which we do here.
