Shalini is an investor, author and a curious cat. Her curiosity around social identity and human well-being led me to author my first book, Clueless at 30, which was released in December 2021.

As an active member in the startup ecosystem, she is in the investment committee for AngelHub in HongKong, an Advisor to AngelList India and WeWork India (startup labs). She has also been associated with several initiatives like Xprize’s Safety Prize as a panel member, Mentor at Facebook’s SheLeadsTech and was the Global Ambassador of Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (UN supported initiative). She was a part of the “40 Under 40” India Alternate Investment Professionals list in 2018. For her leadership around venture capital and startups, she was recognized as Linkedin TopVoice 2017, and was awarded the prestigious fellowship at the Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA), London.

Several speaking engagements include events at Harvard University, IIT Bombay, Facebook, Nasscom, Startup Grind, YourStory, Digital Ocean, and more. She has been vastly covered across different media platforms like CNBC, Economic Times, Mint, Hindu,, YourStory, TechinAsia, and several others, where her opinions on latest trends in Indian startups and entrepreneurship are shared.
