Introducing our newest Analyst – Ishan Pendse

Greetings community! Today, we're thrilled to introduce our newest addition to the team, Ishan Pendse, who joins us as an analyst poised to bring fresh insights and energy to our investment team.

Malpani Ventures is dedicated to building a team that aligns closely with our investment thesis and values. We strongly support founders who share our commitment to innovation, integrity, and long-term growth. By assembling a team with diverse expertise and a shared passion for discovering and nurturing promising startups, we aim to empower entrepreneurs who are visionary and driven by principles that resonate with ours.



Ishan has graduated from NMIMS with a degree in Finance and has completed all three levels of the CFA Program. Having worked as an analyst in the realms of Quantitative trading and Equity Research at BluOpal Advisors & Elixir equities, he has developed a penchant for playing long-term games and keeping a steady hand at times of uncertainty. 

He comes to us with a background of investing in public markets, and a desire to create an impact by generating value for early-stage companies, making him a perfect fit for our mission to identify and nurture the next generation of innovative ventures.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to work with seasoned investors at MV and build my skills to find asymmetries in the startup ecosystem. I am excited to work with the team to be a value add for the founders we back.”

When Ishan is not working with founders, evaluating pitch decks, or carrying out financial due diligence, you will find him reading (currently- Thinking in systems), and on the lookout for new music, with his two dogs.


At Malpani Ventures, Ishan will work on our sectors of focus- SaaS, Health & Education. You can reach out to him on LinkedIn here and congratulate him on his email here, and on behalf of the entire MV community, please join us in congratulating Ishan and welcoming him into our team!
