Amal covers the consumer sectors within Blume. As part of this, he supports sourcing and investment processes on all consumer-focused plays (media, e-commerce, sportstech, gaming), while also looking at opportunities in B2B enablers (MarTech, RetailTech, AdTech, etc.) and B2B marketplaces. Before this, he worked with Strategy& (formerly Booz & Co.) as a management consultant in their India and Middle East offices, working on projects across corp strategy, post-merger strategy, commercial due diligence, public policy, and organizational transformation.
Amal graduated with a Bachelor’s and Master’s in Engineering Physics from IIT Bombay, where he built and led their Placements and Internships team. Originally from Dehradun but having moved out of there 18 years ago (and now in Bengaluru), his love for mountains has translated into his love for hiking and trekking (he plans to do 1 Himalayan trek a year!). Apart from this, he unwinds by strumming his ukulele, following cricket religiously, and frequenting new cafes (never been known to say no to a new roast suggestion!)
