Nitin is a man of many talents and a man for all seasons! A Harvard MBA, a McKinsey consultant, a VC/PE investor and an entrepreneur. He was also the idea man in early days of TiE. He helped structure TiE as a 501c(6) organization and collaborated with Suhas Patil in formulating by-laws of TiE. He inducted Chirag Karia as the first General Counsel of TiE. Chirag later moved to UK and was replaced by Raj Judge who still is TiE General Cousel after all these years.
Early on Nitin organized a retreat of TiE Charter Members in Sonoma to bond CMs and their families. As TiE started to expand beyond SV, these retreats became a way of bonding members globally. These retreats have been a favorite of mine. I have attended most of them. There was supposed to be one in Almaty this year.
The TiE Retreat at Ritz Carlton in Maui has never been matched. Nitin organized that. We had a bollywood band and a five star chef brought from Bombay for that. He had an artist making sketches of group activities. Those poster have been framed and are at TiE office in SV. It was a class act. CK Prahalad attended that and soon after, he penned The House of TiE paper
