Sakshi is the Founder and CEO of FoodHak, a revolutionary new food subscription delivery start-up where the emphasis is on healthy medicinal vegan meals. The mother-of-two comes with a biotech background, having earned a Biotechnology degree from the University of Birmingham and an MBA from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. She began her career with a four year sting at Pfizer - moving from clinical trials and regulatory affairs to manufacturing.
Following that, she relocated to India where she saw a gap in the market for a domestic brand of textiles targeted towards the emerging middle class. She subsequently launched a domestic textiles unit for her father’s export business. The business runs profitably today. After turning to investment, she was poached by SoftBank in California to help manage their early stage funds in Asia and focus on healthcare growth equity investments. Sakshi led the $1billion equity investment into Roivant Sciences and has served on its board for the last five years. She has worked across a range of sectors but boasts particular experience in healthcare and the life sciences and says her focus is on the huge opportunities presented through the intersection of computation and biology and the role that the genomic revolution can play in addressing some of the largest issues facing society. Most of her investments are now public and have paved the way for new science/innovation in their respective fields. Sakshi sees businesses from both a corporate and entrepreneurial perspective. After suffering from an illness during her first pregnancy, she transformed her diet and turned flexi vegan with positive health results. She then conceived the idea to create clinically-backed meals delivered via subscription to those who wish to similarly improve their health. In 2021, she founded FoodHak which is seeing strong early growth.
