I am Vikrant. I have an unconventional mix. I am an engineer, serial operator (4X operator, 2X exits), and a successful go-to-market consultant focused on accelerating revenue.
From 2010 - 2017, I managed revenue growth at a string of four high-profile startups, putting each of them on a trajectory for success. Backers included individuals like Auren Hoffman (sold LiveRamp for $310 million to Axciom) and Tod Sacerdoti (sold Brightroll for $640 million to Yahoo!). I have been a new venture’s first business hire and I have also overseen the management of 200 people. From 2018-2020 I partnered with Mark Roberge (former Chief Revenue Officer for HubSpot - IPO'd in 2014) on a handful of consulting engagements.
I have raised over $100 million in venture funding from top-tier funds and strategic investors like GE, Rockport Capital, Capital, Maveron, ARCH Venture Partners, Polaris Partners, and New York Life Ventures. Today I run an independent consulting practice and make a million dollars a year (roughly).
I wrote my first angel investment check in 2012. They have since raised from SurveyMonkey, Google Ventures and others. I've co-invested with leaders like Arjun Arora, Geoff Entress, and Andy Palmer. I've also co-invested with funds like Vegas Tech Fund, Greycroft, Golden Ventures, Maveron, and MHS Capital.
I'm active on Twitter and write essays and share my frameworks on business growth. I’ve got a book coming out in 2021.
I have access to high-quality companies from across the globe because:
