Mayukh leads strategy and business development for Milaap, and is the architect of the National Skill Loan Portfolio Fund - from concept to execution. Prior to co-founding Milaap, he has been a financial risk consultant in Dubai, where he worked with top banks and asset management firms. An empiricist to the core, Mayukh has spent the last four years in building technology enabled financing models - working in consumer lending for solar-lanterns for D.light, then in developing an commodity financing company as the Head of Collateral Finance with one of India’s leading agri-logistics providers.
A Starting Bloc Fellow, Anoj co-founded Milaap after working with SKS Microfinance in energy and water services. He has also worked at ReEx Capital Asia, a cleantech investment boutique in Singapore and served as a fellow at D.light Design, developing consumer financing & mapping models for rural electrification.When Anoj witnessed first-hand the impact of a $10 solar lantern, sold on credit, to the extremely poor in tribal Orissa, it sparked in him the idea for Milaap - to connect with ease the struggling 700 million people of India with prosperous Indians and the Diaspora, thus, creating opportunities that change the playing field for the poor at an everyday level.
