A Brief Introduction about myself :
My name is Mahesh Das; I have worked in risk management profile(operations) at TATA AIG and at Amazon (Risk Management role).
I have also interned at DCF Ventures, a boutique consulting firm assisting them in their agri-tech startup accelerator program and other business operations – where I learned about startup ecosystems and interacted with many founders.
My day to day activity included:
• Assist with program management for lighthouse accelerator
• Assist with scouting for start-ups on Crunchbase & Tracxn & evaluating pitch decks received.
• Assist in outreach activities/ partnership & BD initiatives.
• Research work on various sectors/startups and Scout for startups in those sectors.
• Social Media Handling, creating videos, and writing articles as and when required.
• Closely work with CEO Laxmi Potluri (Ex Co-founder of Jabong) on various Initiatives of DCF Ventures.
This experience has ignited my interest in the startup ecosystem. I worked closely with Lakshmi Potluri and Nikhil Srinivas on various projects. I would like the opportunity to work with your organization if you see my profile fit for this Role to gain more knowledge.
I have done this internship while pursuing my MBA at SJMSOM, IIT Bombay.
I gained more knowledge about startups and its operations through my stint as a Product Manager at Juspay(a fintech startup enabling online payments and much more).
I was assigned to build an App Metric Dashboard from one of their loan products.
The role requires me to:
• Interact with data, backend, and design team to help build the dashboard.
• Ideate and define the various metrics required for the dashboard.
• Solve the issues arising while building the logic for metrics.
Currently I am working as a Product Manager in Payments department at BukuWarung
My startup experiences include:
1. Company: BukuWarung (YC20) (Indonesian Fintech startup), Role: Product Manager
2. Company: Juspay (fintech startup), Role: Associate Product Manager.
3. Company: Tide (UK-based Fintech startup), Role: Transaction Monitoring Analyst.
4. Company: Itsacheckmate(New york-based Startup), Role: Operations Specialist.
5. Company: DCF Ventures (Consulting firm focused on building startups), Role: Program Associate Intern.
I like to think out of the box and be in an environment that challenges me to grow, research businesses and startups through various platforms, and be curious to learn about multiple business verticals and produce a positive impact while doing the same.
Given my work experiences, I have directly dealt with customers, reducing risk for both customers and the company, interacted with various Indian founders, and worked closely with senior management in accelerator programs. Therefore, I feel I have considerable experience to do justice to this opportunity.
I love to hustle and if you are looking for one please reach out.
