Bold Idea 

Prepare India’s youth for post-graduate life by providing employability training, leadership mentoring, and career services.

Prior to founding Medha, Chris was the Director of Business Development at SKS Microfinance in Hyderabad, where he was responsible for all growth related initiatives, including new product, segment, and channel development. Chris successfully launched SKS’ Health Insurance and Urban Microfinance products as well as managed a number of additional growth related projects including mobile banking.
