Rajeev Chandrasekhar

Rajeev Chandrasekhar

Rajeev Chandrasekhar is the Founder and Chairman of Jupiter Capital Private Limited, a company he founded in 2005. Coming from an educational background including engineering and computer science, Chandrasekhar on the one hand has participated in evolutionary technical developments at Intel and on the other hand is nowadays further known for developing an environment for private investments into the Indian Telecom Sector.

Long before Jupiter Capital, he had founded BPL Mobile in 1995 – one of the first investors in the telecom sector when mobile telephony was still in its infancy, and an appropriate business environment was not developed yet. When Chandrasekhar exited BPL Mobile in 2005, the company was valued at USD 1.1 billion. Jupiter Capital was founded the same year, with $100 million, with a vision to invest in emerging businesses in new markets. Today it has an impressive portfolio to show. Assets and Investments exceeding USD 1 billion with forays ranging from technology to transportation, logistical services to hospitality and entertainment are being managed. Chandrasekhar is an active member in championing issues related to businesses and industry as he invests his time in identifying young entrepreneurs, especially from the North East. His variety of interests and talents entailed a range of achievements including being the youngest President of FICCI – Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce and Industry – during 2008-09 as well as being awarded the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Global Alumni Association Honor in 2007. Besides this variety making Chandrasekhar a successful businessman there have been several controversies about him having his interests in conflicting sectors. Reportedly, he has been criticized for serving as a member for Parliament Standing Committee on Defence and at the same time owning companies in the defence sector such as Axicades. Finally, Chandrasekhar is also active in politics as he is a three-time Member of the Parliament of Rajya Sabha, the Upper House of the Indian Parliament. He represents the Bharatiya Janata Party. There were reports in certain sections of the Indian Press that Chandrasekhar, while filing his nomination papers for election to the Rajya Sabha, did not disclose his actual income, taking advantage of a loophole in the India’s The Representation of People’s Act 1951.
