I’m excited by the continued success and growth of The Fabric and am pleased to announce that Shridhar Venkatraman and Ashu Pande join The Fabric team.

Shridhar and Ashu will be playing an important role in co-creating The Fabric companies in the cloud space and will also be working closely with our cohort of companies who will gain from the richness of their experience.

Shridhar joins us from ESQ Business Services, where as CTO he was responsible for product management and engineering. Prior ESQ Business Services, he built RetailWave with customers using its a cloud-based platform for the retail automation outlets and NeemTree with largest Indian banks using products that automated their treasury operations.

Ashu Pande joins as VP Product and Market Development. He comes from PaySe, an off-line and off-chain cryptocurrency solution, where he was Chief Innovation Officer. Previously he was with SiRF, now Qualcomm, where he drove integration of GPS into mobile phones. Ashu is a pioneer in mobile telephony and location technology and is named in over 60 patents around the world.

The Fabric continues to co-create, fund and accelerate companies in Distributed Multi Cloud, IoT, and Blockchain Infrastructure space. Our co-creation approach has immensely benefited our co-created companies where we deeply collaborate with entrepreneurs through the entire lifecycle of idea creation through company building.

We have had an excellent run with The Fabric 1 where three out of our four co-created companies have already exited. The Fabric 2 is looking strong, and on the back of this success, we are planning our next fund.

Ashu and Shridhar bring decades of industry experience to The Fabric, and we’re thrilled to have them join the team.

Welcome, Shridhar and Ashu!
