Vinayak Mishra to set up Themis Delhi office

Bangalore-headquartered venture capital advisory powerhouse Themis Associates has hired former Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas (SAM) principal associate Vinayak Mishra as a partner-equivalent consultant in Delhi to spearhead its expansion into the city.

Mishra, a 2008 HNLU Raipur graduate, had begun his career at Desai & Diwanji’s Gurgaon office (during the tenure of former partner Amit Khansaheb there).

In 2013, he moved with Khansaheb to BMR Advisors’ best-friend consultancy BMR Legal, and followed him to Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas in 2017.

He had left SAM in December 2018, according to his Linked-in profile.

Outside of its home base in Bangalore, Themis had started a Mumbai office in October 2016, under associate partner Siddharth Manchanda, who had joined from Bharucha & Partners where he was a senior associate.

Themis has completed at least 20 venture capital / PE deals in 2018, according to our deals league table (of which 10 were clocked by Manchanda in Mumbai).

The firm currently has a total of five partners.

We have reached out to Themis and Mishra for comment.
