We moved to India 6 years ago from the valley. I started BuzzGain and then wanted to start another company, but ended up at Microsoft instead.
Now we are moving back to the US in July or August. We are heading to Seattle.
I will still come to India every couple of months and the team here will continue to report to me, but I will live in Seattle.
Microsoft Ventures in India has 2 leaders – Ravi Narayan and Rajinish Menon. Ravi focuses on the accelerator and Rajinish on the community and engagement with the ecosystem.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in India and have made many friends and a few enemies as well. I have made more than my share of mistakes. So for all those mistakes and the people I have messed up, apologies.
To all the wonderful folks in the various cities that have hosted me and been such a source of support when things were going horribly wrong, thank you very much.
Most of all, thank you very much for being good friends and supporting me with your emails, tweets, blog comments and messages.
