By way of introduction, I am Ashish Deora, CEO of Aurum Ventures, which I founded in 1996 at the age of 21. I have been fortunate to gain extensive experience in multiple industries, including Mining and Exploration, Aviation, Automotive Components, Renewable Energy, Telecom, Real Estate, and PropTech. This has been possible due to the overall growth that India has witnessed Specifically in the last decade.

As a first-generation entrepreneur, I am passionate about driving Aurum towards meaningful endeavours while working with an excellent team and efficient capital. As a leader, nurturing entrepreneurship, innovation, and philanthropy is a daily activity. 

As an alumnus of Harvard Business School, I have sought to incorporate some of the valuable lessons, such as the ‘Case Study’ method into my company culture and team trainings. 

Having been fortunate to learn from successful exits and growth opportunities both in India and overseas, I am passionate about identifying and managing businesses in growth-led and data-centric sectors.

My firm belief lies in the potential of Indian entrepreneurs to create a significant impact in the coming decade. As a serial entrepreneur, nothing excites me more than identifying contrarian opportunities in businesses and skilfully mitigating risks. A voracious reader, my inspiration spans from Vivekananda to Bezos, with my current favourite book being ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’ by Paramhansa Yogananda.

Sundays are devoted to spending quality time with my son and daughter, while my travels are an opportunity to keenly observe and learn from different cultures. Living by the principle from the Bhagavad Gita, I wholeheartedly focus on actions rather than results.
