Prashant is a Partner at Lightbox, a Mumbai based
venture capital firm building consumer technology
After an MBA at Wharton, Prashant began his career in finance at Lehman Brothers where he understood the art of investing in emerging markets. Keen to learn more about how technology was changing the world, he moved to Silicon Valley to join Yahoo! where he led commercial operations that generated over $150 million in annual revenue.
Having seen the promise of technology in emerging markets, Prashant and his family moved to Mumbai in the midst of the world financial crisis to lead an early stage technology start up – Komli Media. Over the next five years, first as COO and then as CEO, Prashant led an incredibly talented team at Komli, Asia’s leading advertising technology company. Along the way, they grew revenues 50x and expanded into 10 new international markets.
