Ravi is the Founder and Co-Managing Partner of Elevation Capital. Ravi currently sits on the boards of Paytm, UrbanCompany, ClearTax, CapitalFloat, Tracxn, and Rivigo.
I love working with founders that are looking for a partner, not just capital. Capital is a commodity.
"I enjoy partnering with founders early on when there is nothing more than a story to tell. I believe that storytelling is one of the most underrated characteristics of a strong founder. The difference between a good and great storyteller is often the difference between building a good company and building an iconic company. It helps to raise capital, to build a team, and to get early customers. Often, nothing is obvious early on other than the founder's passion and it is contagious.
The best part of being in venture capital is that every day you get to meet and work with founders and learn something new. I love working with founders that are looking for a partner, not just capital. Capital is a commodity."
