Quick intro!

I’m Ankit Arora, an early through growth VC focussed on emerging markets (India, SEA, MENA). Previously, I was part of the investment team at Accel, where I led consumer tech & tech-enabled investments. Prior to that I was an investor at Unilazer Ventures.

I began this newsletter on persuasion by a few friends and colleagues who found my article on VC fundraising informative.

Who reads TrueGrit?

I enjoy writing about technology, early/growth stage VC investing and fundraising. As such, my readers skew towards early stage entrepreneurs / investors, emerging managers and students who wish to learn more about VC in emerging markets.
