Merisis Opportunities Fund has announced the appointment of Shreyas Chandra as head of marketing. He will head the investment bank’s AIF category one angel fund.
 
Chandra moves from Mintosh, where he was principal. 
 
Sumir Verma, managing director, Merisis Advisors, said, “Shreyas comes with the unique combination of a person who understands the startup economy and is deeply networked and invested in this sector. We are delighted that he has chosen to work with us and we look forward to working with him to offer the Opportunities Fund to a larger network of like-minded investors and create value for both the entrepreneurs and the investors.”
 
Chandra said, “With increasing interest to invest in start-ups, investors are looking at options to diversify within private market investments to reduce their risk. Merisi's Opportunities Fund's risk mitigated approach fills that gap and offers a hybrid model with evaluation, diligence and governance of a venture capital fund but with a flexibility of deal-by-deal commitment. I am excited to work with the dynamic team at Merisi's which has strong relationships with the stakeholders of the start-up ecosystem.”
 
In a career spanning over 23 years, he has also worked at HDFC Securities, CleanO2, and Saxon Capital, among others.
