Tanvi Ghate

Associate, Legal

Tanvi joined Lightbox in January 2019 and focuses her efforts on financial and legal aspects of investments.

After her law degree from ILS Law College in Pune, Tanvi began working at AZB & Partners in Mumbai working early mornings and late nights with the Capital Markets team on IPO listings on the stock exchange for many of India's blue chip companies.

After working with AZB for 3 years, she moved to a new role as a Senior Legal Advisor for the M&A team at LegaLogic Consulting. Her role involved drafting and negotiation of investment agreements and diligence for startups in their early rounds of funding where she got a taste of India’s bubbling tech environment. That led her to Lightbox.

Tanvi is a national level basketball player and thoroughly enjoys her time on those courts too! More recently, she’s found a love for gardening and you will usually find her reading a book in her curated terrace garden over weekends.
