Ritesh Banglani


Ritesh has a strong interest in companies solving uniquely Indian problems, especially those applying new technologies to their industry for the first time.

Ritesh focuses on Fintech, Healthcare, Automotive, Travel/ Mobility and Real Estate investments. Prior to Stellaris, Ritesh was a Partner at Helion, where he invested in companies like Taxiforsure, Lifecell, and Trulymadly. Before he moved to the dark side in 2007, he was a product manager for online and mobile consumer products.

He has a B. Tech in Electrical Engineering from IIT Delhi and an MBA from INSEAD, and has served as Adjunct Faculty at IIM Bangalore.

Ritesh loves to engage in conversations about technology, economics, books, comics and cricket – basically your average social media warrior. Once upon a time, he was quite outdoorsy but now he spends his days recalling past glories.
