Rahul Narvekar

Position: CEO, Sun and Sands Advisors Co. Ltd.


A seasoned startup entrepreneur, having earned his stripes in Mumbai and accumulated a track record in Delhi. Rahul has enormous experience (proven experience with a success record to boot, with global attestations to back it up) with ecommerce out of India, and he knows this space from its inception to where it is today.

Yes, Rahul has a professional degree from IIM Calcutta, and will gleefully share with you all the hallowed rules that he learnt, that he broke, and found himself writing a new chapter in Indian ecommerce.

Specialties: startups , ecommerce, retail on the subcontinent, all elements of the retail experience be it online or physical.

By extension, a command of all aspects of real estate: sourcing, pricing, negotiation, buying, leasing, renting, development.

Marketing malls in India is an elusive space that I am completely conversant with.
