In college, Vishal helped a friend with the launch of the Kairos Society, an organization connecting student entrepreneurs across college campuses. Through that experience, he gained exposure to early stage technology and entrepreneurship—and learned about new startups, serving as a thought partner to entrepreneurs. After a jaunt in consulting, Vishal entered the world of venture capital, and soon moved back to the Bay Area to join Aspect Ventures, where he loves the lean, all-hands-on-deck approach.
Vishal helps the firm find and vet investment opportunities and develop theses that are aligned with Aspect's focus areas. Once Aspect makes an investment, Vishal seeks to partner with the entrepreneurs to proactively be helpful on a variety of dimensions, including recruiting, strategy, product, and business development.
