Shruti Gandhi

San Francisco, CA

I invest in passionate entrepreneurs and help them achieve their vision. Currently, I invest for True Ventures.

Previously I was at Samsung's Early Stage Fund and have led investments in four companies LearnSprout, Agnitus, Zimperium, and Engrade (exit to McGraw Hill). I gained venture investing experience working at Lightbank, HighBAR Partners and i2A Fund, where I helped with investments in Vyatta (exit to Brocade) and Locu (exit to GoDaddy).

Previously, I founded Penseev to help people connect and foster relationships. At IBM, I started an incubator, worked on a ThinkTank/Do Tank for IBM’s CEO Sam Palmisano’s office, and developed collaboration tools.

I'm a geek at heart and love playing with new gadgets. I am a co-chair of the Mobility track for TiE Silicon Vallery chapter and on the Marketing Committee of the San Francisco Ballet. You can probably find me tinkering in my kitchen or exploring bay area trails.
