It is an awesome career graph. Vishakha Mulye, 42, took over as Managing Director and CEO of ICICI Venture Funds Management two years ago, after having been Chief Financial Officer of the ICICI group.

Since then, she has raised fresh capital of $400 million (Rs 1,800 crore) within the country, realised another $350 million from a dozen exit deals across various funds, and sealed five new investments in high growth companies.

She flies tirelessly around the world, meeting investors in the most unlikely countries. "I'm not missing out on anything," she says. The latest preoccupation of this mother of two is the deal she has sealed with the US-based Apollo Global Management to launch a special situations fund. "The stress in the economy and corporate sector will create opportunities to bring in risk capital," she says. She has also begun a $750 million infrastructure vertical.
