In this episode, Hall welcomes Vinay Singh of Fireside Ventures. Fireside Ventures is an early-stage investment platform focused on consumer brands. From prototyping and consumer testing to a longer initial gestation period, and a greater need for mentorship, they understand the highly specific needs of a consumer startup.
Vinay spent his early career at Hindustan Unilever as a marketing manager for multi-core brands. With his extensive expertise working in digital marketing with McKinsey & Co., and Bankbazaar.com, Vinay has a unique perspective on the intersection between consumer brands and technology. He has also spent time as an entrepreneur, as the founder and CEO of Stepni.com, which was later acquired by Quikr.
