Saumya Porwal


Sprung from the lively city of Kanpur, Saumya’s academic path led her through economics at Lady Shri Ram College, followed by an MBA from IIM Ahmedabad.

Saumya's career journey began at Avendus, where she dove into the world of structured finance, crafting solutions for companies spanning various sectors – even diving into the exciting universe of consumer brands.

However, the allure of early-stage startups pulled her in a different direction. Taking on the early-stage venture capital challenge at DSGCP, she found herself right where the excitement was. This twist not only fed her fascination with budding businesses but also resonated with her love for shopping. With a spotlight on consumer brands, her new role brought her closer to the type of brands she had always admired, weaving her personal interests into her professional journey. Her passion for consumer products intertwined with the excitement of connecting with entrepreneurs keeps Saumya ticking.

Beyond the work hustle, you can often catch Saumya perfecting her semi-classical dance moves, indulging in retail therapy and exploring new horizons for her next thrill.
