Our Monday morning started with really sad news; Grow VC Advisor Rahul Patwardhan has passed away during the weekend. Rahul was an extraordinary supporter of Grow VC since the very beginning. Rahul helped us in many things and it was a privilege to have him in our constant dialogue. Rahul was a real pioneer of entrepreneurship and Venture Capital activities in India.
Last time I talked with Rahul was three weeks ago. He was as positive and enthusiastic as always. We talked about several new plans, and how Rahul also wanted to start new activities in India. I had a scheduled call about these new initiatives with him for this weeks Friday, planned monthly for the future. But that call will now never happen. The demise of Rahul was unexpected to all of us. Our thoughts are with his family and close ones. Rahul was always positive and optimistic. I think the best way to respect his memory is continue life in the optimistic way he showed us, and at the same time be thankful for each day.
We continue business with the IndiaCo team and want to implement those things Rahul planned. We feel we owe it to him.
