Good begets good

For he is a jolly good fellow. Mohanjit believes that good begets good. And that applies to investment, entrepreneurship (and life as a whole). Enthusiastic about coaching ventures to scale, his mantra has helped him forge enduring relationships (and build bridges) across the U.S. and India. His 23 years of investing and operating experience are highlighted by an abiding passion for technology.

Before joining Iron Pillar, Mohanjit served as a Partner at Draper Fisher Jurvetson for 9 years, establishing their India operations, overseeing the India venture portfolio and coordinating business development efforts with Fortune 500 companies. Prior to this, he was a Partner at Garage Technology Ventures, a Silicon Valley seed stage VC firm.

His early years in California and Boston saw him help launch ViaSpace, a technology incubator in conjunction with Caltech and JPL and help launch a JV between Mattel and Intel. He also worked at Itek Optical Systems, a manufacturer of high-resolution reconnaissance systems.
