 “Great things are done when Men and Mountains meet” – William Blake

My favourite movie is ‘Touching the Void’, an extraordinary tale of grit, survival, and friendship of two climbers in impossible danger, a shattered leg, a drop, a body hanging from a rope set in the Peruvian Andes. While the book is quite technical, but I like it because of the resilience show by one of the climbers even in the darkest of times (read as falling in a crevice with severe frostbites and a broken leg and not a soul to call upon for help).

I would love to do the mother of all road trips – travel from the top of Alaska to the tip of Tierra Del Fuego on the Pan American Highway.

Monopolistic market position in a huge TAM with strong moats and high barriers to entry with 30%+ growth and 10x EBITDA Multiple.

A collection of smart and relentless group of people; working with outlier entrepreneurs and helping them create legendary companies and shaping the future of fintech.
