BwB is delighted to announce the appointment of Akshay Kiran as a Member of the Investment Committee of BwB’s own pilot venture fund investing in the Nature Tech space (“BVF I”).

He also advises Firlej-Kastory (a next-gen Polish family office) and their maiden "Expeditions" venture fund focused on early-stage deep-tech. He previously ran the merchant banking arm of a Singapore-based multi-family office focused on similar strategies but also supporting families in infrastructure and real assets across North and South East Asia with growth and liquidity solutions. Prior to this, he spent five years in project development and energy infrastructure finance primarily in Indonesia. Akshay started his career in financial services with Barclays Capital and Lehman Brothers on the FI Rates and prime services teams respectively.
He holds a BSc (Maths) from SSSIHL and is currently completing an Executive MBA at the University of Oxford, Said Business School.
"We are at a critical juncture where even small interventions can have immediate repercussions on climatic stability, and hence imperative that such interventions are very well thought-out and executed. The BVF 1 fund was founded to finance technologies that facilitate these kinds of positive systemic transitions. I am excited and honored to be supporting the exceptional BwB team on this flagship initiative where I will look to bring my experiences gleaned in technology and infrastructure finance, and systems thinking approaches along with my global network of ecosystem partners.”, commented Akshay.
We look forward to working together!
