Poonam Sharma forayed into the start-up world under the stewardship of Roopa Doraswamy followed by a short stint at Aarin Capital Partners where she learned the ropes of the VC world. She then moved to work at Nishith Desai Associates where she represented domestic and international clients in investment deals and acquisitions across various industries.

She has worked on a variety of deals including acquisitions, control acquisitions, fund raises, cross border buyouts, complex private equity exits, portfolio buyouts, secondary share purchases and joint ventures. She is now doubling back into what got her curious in the first place - the start-up and venture capital world.

In her spare time, Poonam is a budding baker and aspiring tea sommelier (if the concept does not exist she will create it!), who also indulges in writing the odd bit of poetry. Some time ago, she also channelled her binge-watching abilities into a blog on law in pop-culture, where she attempted to educate her readers about law via movies, television shows and art.
