Sruti joined Activant in 2019 and channels her engineering background to bring a technical lens to the investment team. Her expertise in chemical-biological engineering and economics enables her to exercise a scientific approach to understand complex technologies and sophisticated business models. Sruti is especially enthusiastic about businesses which aim to commercialize nascent technologies to catalyze sustainable practices and efficiency in industries still plagued by outdated infrastructure.

Prior to joining Activant, Sruti was a part of the Investment Banking Division at Goldman Sachs, where she covered the energy and healthcare sectors. Her interest in supply chain efficiency and sustainability were born out of her early work in cleantech engineering, while her scientific expertise was developed during her time as a researcher at the Stanford School of Medicine.

Sruti graduated from Stanford University in 2019, with a double major in Chemical-Biological Engineering and Economics. In her free time, she can be found on the closest hiking trail, mountain, or body of water.
