Founding Partner – London, New York, Zurich
Kajal is the founding partner at Growth Hub US. Born and raised in London but a New Yorker for the last 8 years she spent her first few years working with leading Fortune 100 clients in Corporate America and transitioned to successfully launch and grow her own business in the US. After overcoming a number of internationalisation challenges, she was inspired to support ambitious European entrepreneurs with their US growth. She has worked directly with founders of high growth European companies primarily in B2B technology and most recently a Swiss Artificial Intelligence company to scale US operations. She co-founded Columbia Business School’s first incubator and its success led to its expansion across the university. In 2013 she also co-founded Building20, a private network of finance investors and entrepreneurs with a senior executive at BlackRock. Kajal is a mentor for the Mayor of London’s International Business Programme and Columbia University businesses. Kajal’s entrepreneurial experience is complemented by a strong track record as a Manager in Strategy and Operations at Deloitte. She has worked with both FTSE 100 and Fortune 100 clients across financial services, private equity and media.
Kajal holds a BSc in Economics from the London School of Economics and an MBA from Columbia Business School and is an Associate of the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants.
