Sridhar Ravipati

Hi, I’m Sridhar!

My journey with Saama began in 2010, and I have been running the Finance function while working closely with the legal and fund administration teams since.

I started my career at India’s leading credit rating agency as a research associate. I later joined Solar Electric Light Company (SELCO), a renewable energy services company, as a senior finance manager and played a crucial role in bringing mainstream banks and multilateral agencies to join India’s first rural financing program. I subsequently worked with Vistra Corporate Services, spearheading their finance function for corporates seeking to expand into India, including the GP finance function for venture capital funds.

I pride myself in filling the knowledge gaps in various aspects of a company’s business dealings and espousing a solution-oriented approach anchored in helping businesses grow pragmatically. In addition, I enjoy guiding start-ups with my strong accounting and commercial knowledge as they navigate their growth trajectory.

Fun Fact: I am known to have a wicked sense of humor!
