New Delhi [India], February 11 (ANI/NewsVoir): Kuberan's House, a first and one-of-its-kind platform dedicated to the upliftment of the start-up industry has announced getting on board Mahaveer Pratap Sharma and Girish Shivani as the second and third investor respectively for their show. This show is a first and one-of-its-kind for aspiring entrepreneurs, inviting applications for innovative pitches worthy of being transformed into a start-up venture from an idea they have announced the extension of the application dates to February 15, 2021.

Mahaveer Pratap Sharma, the second Kubera is the Chairman and Co-founder of Rajasthan Angel Innovators' Network (RAIN), an integral part of an angel investor network of Rajasthan. He is also the founding member of four companies and has his presence across industries ranging from organic products to carpets and silver jewellery, to event management. Having pursued graduation in Science, he moved to the US and worked in the international trading market for six years. He was also the Chairman of the TiE Global Board of Trustees for the year 2020. Presently, he is the Chair of the recently announced TiE India Angels, an initiative of TiE Global.

Presently, he is considered to be one of the high-end investors and mentors in the start-up space. A passionate entrepreneur, he is also addressed as a recognised angel investor and global mentor for start-ups. Possessing an interest in global trade partnerships, alliances, and negotiations, event planning, handicrafts and textiles, strategic marketing and branding activities, he works with an aim to provide guidance to budding entrepreneurs. His interest in extending mentorship to the aspiring entrepreneurs and ideas made him the appropriate choice for roping him in as the second investor. Additionally, his current position at TiE India Angels and his craving to extend assistance and learning to the deserving individuals further supported this move of selecting him as the second Kubera.

Girish Shivani is the third Kubera to be roped in for the show. He is the Co-founder, Executive Director, and Fund Manager Funding Partner at YourNest. He is touted to be a trend spotter and high-end advisor to clients and start-ups in the industry. Known and admired as a thought leader and domain expert in business intelligence, big data, and analytics, he possesses diverse experience in various sectors including telecom, media, IT and Finance, fund management, and equity research.

An MBA and Computer Science graduate, he worked hard to achieve his goals of being a successful entrepreneur. Due to his consistent and persistent efforts, he was able to come up with the leading venture capital firm, YourNest, and is now a well-recognised name in the start-up arena. Known to be one of the powerful members in the start-up space, he has so far invested in key firms including Uniphore, Momspresso, MIKO, Cron AI, pCloudy, just to name a few.

Due to his vast industry exposure and stints as an angel investor and Business Intelligence Evangelist, he is the apt choice for the next investor. Specialising in early-stage venture capital, data warehousing, and Business Intelligence and Analytics, and having over two decades of industry experience; he is always keen to learn about the emerging technologies and hence he is the next Kubera seems to be an ideal decision.

Since both of the investors' goals of providing relevant assistance and guidance to the aspiring entrepreneurs are aligned with the mission of the show, they are indeed the right selection for Kuberas. Their diverse industry experience, career portfolio, and full of struggles yet powerful journeys combined with their first-hand experiences of the start-up and angel investing industries further supports this collaboration.
