Uber’s Jain joins VC firm Se­quoia In­dia

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times Business -

Bengaluru: Amit Jain, the for­mer Asia Pa­cific head of ride-hail­ing ma­jor Uber, has joined ven­ture cap­i­tal firm Se­quoia Cap­i­tal In­dia as a man­ag­ing direc­tor (MD) based out of the firm’s Sin­ga­pore of­fice. Jain will look at mid to late-stage in­vest­ments at the firm, which man­ages over $4 bil­lion in funds for the re­gion, across both In­dia and South­east Asia.

“Amit’s 20 years of op­er­at­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and ter­rific track record of build­ing and man­ag­ing hy­per-growth tech busi­nesses glob­ally, is go­ing to give founders of fast-grow­ing star­tups in our port­fo­lio a huge ad­van­tage,” said Se­quoia’s GV Rav­is­hankar in a state­ment.

Jain had joined Uber as its first coun­try-spe­cific head in In­dia back in 2015.
