There are business models to be explored in every industry, that combine services to the marginalized while maintaining profitability

Amit Rathi

Amit joined Elevar in 2016. He believes that: “For any industry there is a price point/business model where services can be made available to the marginalized society and still make economic sense to companies creating a win-win situation for all stakeholders. At Elevar, there is a constant endeavor to back such business models and entrepreneurs through their journey which is very exciting to me.”

Amit joined Elevar with 16+ years of experience, of which the majority has been in the field of investing, either as a diligence advisor, investor or an investment banker. Prior to joining Elevar, Amit worked with Unitus Capital, an impact focused Investment bank. He led equity and debt transactions across various verticals including financial services, healthcare, and dairy being part of the firm’s senior management. Prior to that, Amit was with TVS Capital, an India based private equity fund, where he worked on raising the fund and investing. Earlier, Amit worked with KPMG and Ernst & Young in their diligence, assurance and risk advisory teams. He has also worked with The World Bank group.
