S. Venkatesh


Venkatesh wears many hats. In his roles as private equity investor, executive coach, corporate leader, entrepreneur and Board member, he has helped businesses thrive and grow. He spent a significant part of his professional life in the stock markets with Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank and JP Morgan, and continues to be an avid investor.

Venkatesh has been keenly interested in Eastern philosophy and mysticism right from his college days at IIT Delhi and IIM Calcutta. He has found his inspiration to write in rather curious settings – while crawling through war tunnels in Vietnam, coming face-to-face with a bear during a trek in the Nilgiris, chancing upon an Indus Valley ruin while on a road trip, listening to ‘Madhushala’, or just drinking cutting chai by the roadside. He is passionate about self-discovery and the power of stories to inspire and transform.
