As a Co-Founder, he has been a key member of the Bank’s Executive Management, the Management Credit Committee and the Asset Liability Committee for over 8 yrs and emerged as an exceptional leader in building start-up businesses and taking them to scale.

His path-breaking commercial banking services to low-income populations for over 1 mn families annually (~ 5 mn people) were recognized in a HBS 2010 case study and subsequently won him a Public Service Fellowship at Harvard in 2011. Somak decided to move on from Yes Bank in September 2012 to pursue his professional and personal passion of Contrarian Capitalism for Mainstreaming Change –moving the investment thesis of investing in BoP businesses from niche to mainstream. The Contrarian Vriddhi Fund- I is an Angel Fund which invests in early stage enterprises with investment size between INR 50 lakhs going upto INR 5 crs progressively in subsequent rounds.
