Hi, I’m Mayank!
As the newest addition to the family, I’m excited to contribute to Saama’s ongoing success in the startup ecosystem and assist founders by providing strategic guidance and support. Drawing from my own experiences, I hope to help founders navigate the unique challenges and opportunities that arise during the startup journey.
Prior to joining Saama, I worked as the Head of Business Development at an early-stage SaaS startup offering automated bookkeeping and consultancy services. In this role, I was responsible for developing and implementing the GTM strategy and building the sales channels for the company’s products. I’ve also advised multiple early-stage startups on raising capital.
I started my career as an entrepreneur by establishing a farm-to-market supply chain startup in Bihar, focusing on market linkage and low-cost financing. Through this venture, we enabled over 1,000 farmers to sell their produce directly from their farm gates while creating a pre-harvest credit program for farmers without a formal credit history.
I earned a degree in Management from London Business School. I am a CFA Charterholder and hold a Bachelor of Commerce (Hons.) in Accounting & Finance from St. Xaviers’ College (Autonomous), Kolkata. Outside of work, I enjoy reading non-fiction and playing Texas hold ’em.
Fun Fact: Aviation has always been a subject of great fascination for me, and I am committed to pursuing my dream of acquiring a private pilot’s license.
