Hi, this is Prateek Sharma.
I am the founder and managing partner of Ahead VC, an early stage venture capital firm based in the San Francisco Bay Area. I help cross-border founders build companies for the global market.
In the past, I have been a founder. I co-founded Mygola, a travel startup, in the earliest days of the startup ecosystem in Bangalore. Mygola was acquired by Makemytrip (NASDAQ: MMYT).
I started my career as an Engineer, helping build some of the early telecom equipment that powered the internet roll-out in India. I have built products both for consumers and businesses companies.
I am an avid reader and enjoy reading sci-fi, history, science, philosophy, psychology and more. My personal goal when reading is to create an ever deeper map of how the world really works and how it can be in the future. I love music, and am always looking for new artists to listen to. I drink a lot of coffee.
