[ VERMA VECTOR ]


The philosophy of Verma Vector revolves around Hilbert Space. Similar to how mathematical concept of a Hilbert space, named after David Hilbert, generalizes the notion of vector algebra and calculus from the two-dimensional Euclidean space and three-dimensional space to spaces with any finite or infinite number of dimensions, Verma Vector aims to extend the boundaries of technology innovation to many dimensions.

The Big Problem of Our Time

The big problem of our time is that we haven’t been able to achieve breakthrough inventions / develop much useful intellectual properties that can be commercialised on a global scale. This problem is relevant even to developed nations including the United States, Japan and United Kingdom. This issue of lack of breakthrough inventions finds a special and very important place in the growth narrative of emerging nations, especially India's. We believe that such inventions are the only way to solve legacy problems and do well w.r.t. economic growth and societal development.

Verma Vector specialises in the art of merging disciplines and working at intersections of several fields to solve such big problems. We are experts in the art of starting and scaling technology businesses, building deep research-based products, helping leaders strategise, invest and lead better.

Testimonial

CEO & Co-founder, AdSparx

Anshuman is one of the few ones I know, who has moved back to being an entrepreneur after being a VC. Unsurprisingly too, as Anshuman is an entrepreneur at heart and gives solid practical advice to entrepreneurs.

Personally, I have always found his practical, no-nonsense approach very useful and encouraging. He walks the talk, and is a delight to speak to.

Wish him the best for his current and future endeavours!

We have had the pleasure of having Anshuman as an Angel Investor in Amigobulls. He has this unique combination of expertise in Finance, Technology and most importantly user-understanding.

Being an entrepreneur and an investor, Anshuman brings in a balanced perspective from both sides of the eco-system.

Co-Founder & CTO at MobStac

I've had the pleasure of working with Anshuman on a new mobile app that we launched at MobStac. Anshuman was involved from the app's earliest days and his work on helping shape the app has been nothing short of stellar.
From the time he first started, Anshuman has been eating our dogfood, giving the team continuous feedback on how the product works in the field, testing it in different parts of India, and essentially working as a very integral part of the product team. I've also found Anshuman to be very actively thinking about BD opportunities and finding ways for us to grow the app even faster, essentially through strategic tie-ups.
Anshuman has been a key member of team, giving us a very grounded and realistic perspective on the product. His involvement and ownership on the team has been exemplary - I look forward to continuing to work with Anshuman in scaling the app's growth and reach.

Founder & CEO, Frrole Inc.

I have known Anshuman for about 3 years now. As one of our angel investors, Anshuman has been a strong pillar of support for us; helping not just reactively, but even proactively. Don't let his sometimes soft demeanor mislead you, underneath is a man with an ability to have strong contrarian views and make bets accordingly.

He works with a firm set of beliefs and having been on both sides of the investor-entrepreneur table (for much longer than most), he has the ability to understand the big picture like few do.
