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.
