Bangalore-headquartered venture capital advisory powerhouse Themis Associates has hired former SAM Principal Associate Vinayak Mishra as a partner-equivalent consultant in Delhi to spearhead its expansion into the city.
Mishra, a 2008 HNLU Raipur graduate, had begun his career at Desai & Diwanji’s Gurgaon office (during the tenure of former partner Amit Khansaheb there).
In 2013, he moved with Khansaheb to BMR Advisors’ best-friend consultancy BMR Legal, and followed him to Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas in 2017.
As per his Linked-In profile, he had left SAM in Dec 2018.
Outside of its home base in Bangalore, Themis had started a Mumbai office in Oct 2016, under associate partner Siddharth Manchanda, who had joined from Bharucha & Partners where he was a senior associate.
Themis has completed at least 20 venture capital / PE deals in 2018, according to our deals league table (of which 10 were clocked by Manchanda in Mumbai).
The firm currently has a total of 5 partners.
