Meet our Mentors: Puneet Chaddha, Advisor to the Board of Global Initiatives and Former CEO & Head



Tell us a bit about yourself


I’ve just finished with my previous role at HSBC and am preparing for the next phase of my career. I intend to help young companies establish a platform for sustainable growth. This would not only mean business growth but also initiatives that will help make them more resilient.


Please share your engagement with startups thus far.


I have mentored a number of startups and enjoy listening to them. As expected most of them are very confident about their products/solutions which sometimes prevent them from seeing larger opportunities. Keeping an open mind would be my advice.


Please share what you enjoy about being a mentor thus far.


Enjoying a birds-eye view allows me to spot issues/opportunities that tend to get missed in the day to day.


Why did you decide to become a mentor with Plug and Play?


I sensed a genuine desire to help startups. Apart from that, the professionalism of its staff was impressive.


For you, what is the value in being a mentor?


Mentoring invokes a strong sense of responsibility, which I find motivating.
