I worked with Rakesh twice. First my private equity fund invested into Luminous Power Inverter, we successfully exited it to Schneider Elect ... ric at >US$300m valuation. We have partnered the second time when we invested in Livpure water purifier, despite it being an early stage business. The reason is that we have had significant comfort with Rakesh at he had developed significant growth in our investment in Luminous and we would to replicate the same result in Livpure. During his time with Lumnous, Rakesh had methodically built a strong management team, distributorship network and created a strong brands despite the strong incumbent competitors that were already present. He did not just try to built a brand by just blowing huge amounts and ad spends, he looked for the most effective means to deliver the same results.
