She was dubbed the 'queen of private equity in India' when she headed ICICI Venture. But in April 2009 she quit abruptly to begin work from scratch on a start-up.

The start-up now is a $450 million (Rs 2,025 crore) fund, Multiples Alternate Asset Management, backed by top Indian and global institutional investors, of which Renuka Ramnath, 49, is Managing Director and CEO. How tough were the last two years? "With 100 per cent time spent in productive work, my experience was very enjoyable," she says.

Her inner strength is evident in the way she reacts to the global economic crisis. On the verge of leaving for the United States for a round of fund raising, she maintains she is unperturbed. "One has to embrace different strategies in different environments," she says.
