HEMANT GUPTA
MD, BRTSIF, BSE Sammaan CSR Ltd

Hemant Gupta is the Managing Director at BRTSIF (BIL Ryerson Technology Startup Incubator Foundation) and the MD and CEO of BSE Sammaan CSR Ltd., a fully owned Subsidiary of BSE Ltd. After 26 years at Citi, one of the largest Global Financial Powerhouses, where he worked in a wide variety of functions including Product Management, Technology, Operations and Internal Audit, in India and North America, Hemant decided to swap a large Corporate role for a more socially impactful role with BSE Sammaan, which helps Companies do more effective CSR. It was a logical next step in that journey to take on the task of leveraging Innovation and promote Social enterprises for multiplying social impact. He is a member of the Working committee constituted by SEBI for setting up the Social Stock Exchange in India. He has recently taken over the helm of BSE’s Tech Incubator/Accelerator called Zone Startups India and is actively leading several Accelerator programs including empoWer – India’s first Women focused Startup Accelerator. Hemant holds a Management degree from IIM Calcutta and an Engineering degree from IIT Madras.
