Citi Ventures Enterprise Tech Summit 2022

Lessons from a Serial Entrepreneur

Enterprise tech leader Jyoti Bansal has founded two “unicorn” companies – including Citi Ventures portfolio company Harness – as well as a seed venture fund that has invested in several top-tier software startups.

“[Success] really starts with a mission that your people are passionate about and buy into,” Jyoti said.
