Bridge India Spring Reception, with FTI Consulting

Thank you to everyone that came to our Spring Reception in London in partnership with FTI Consulting in April 2022.

We had attendees from technology, finance, business as well as academic and think tanks, in an evening gathering to celebrate India’s 75th anniversary, look ahead to our Ideas for India event next month and hear from our inspirational speakers.

Vikash Gupta, Co-founder and CEO of VAR Capital, spoke about the growth of his multi-family office, business and CSR links with India, as well as building challenger bank Monument Bank. Rajat Mehta (Head, Consumer Business, OakNorth Bank) spoke about joining YES Bank in India when it was a startup with less than ten people, and leaving after growing to the fourth largest bank in India, doing an MBA in London at the age of 40 and now working at growing OakNorth’s retail business.

After this Spring Reception, our next big event is our annual flagship Ideas for India conference, in Birmingham and London in May 2022.
