A passionate entrepreneur, he is also addressed as a recognized angel investor and global mentor for start-ups. Possessing an interest in global trade partnerships, alliances, and negotiations, event planning, handicrafts and textiles, strategic marketing and branding activities, he works with an aim to provide guidance to budding entrepreneurs. His interest in extending mentorship to the aspiring entrepreneurs and ideas made him the appropriate choice for roping him in as the second investor. Additionally, his current position at TiE India Angels and his craving to extend assistance and learning to the deserving individuals further supported this move of selecting him as the second Kubera.
Mr. Girish Shivani is the third Kubera to be roped in for the show. He is the Co-founder, Executive Director, and Fund Manager Funding Partner at YourNest.
