Welcome Saurabh Kumar!

Saurabh Kumar Investment Analyst

Another talented addition to the Katapult team: introducing Saurabh Kumar, Katapult’s newest Investment Analyst. Saurabh has been working across the Katapult Group as a Startup Scout since September 2020 and a Lead Scout since Spring 2021.

In 2020, he was also busy finishing a Double Masters Degree in Economics and Business Administration from The Norwegian School of Economics (NHH) and Global Business Management from The University of Queensland.

He has always had an interest in the startup community and followed-up this passion as a head of the Entrepreneurship Development Cell at SRCC India, as a core member in UQ Ventures Australia and as a Strategy Intern at the startup Indo Naturals as well as the Australia Philippines Business Council. But what drew Saurabh to Katapult?

“My experience living on four different continents has changed my perspective towards the commitment I have for this world. Now I consider myself a global citizen rather than a citizen of any particular country. Impact is also something I became more inclined to pursue because of my global experience.

We all know that climate change is impacting the whole world and we know why it needs to be urgently addressed. Growing up in India and then being fortunate to live in both developing and developed parts of the world, I understand the need for impact and its potential avenues. As an Investment Analyst at Katapult, I will be able to make a global impact working with companies on both sides.”

Katapult is excited to make an impact with you, Saurabh!
