Ayush is a Venture Fellow at Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund. The Rise of the Rest Seed Fund seeks to invest catalytic venture capital into the most promising seed-stage companies located outside of Silicon Valley, New York City, and Boston. The fund’s thesis centers on the belief that some of the most compelling investment opportunities in the next decade will likely emerge from startups in cities all across the United States.
Prior to joining Revolution, Ayush was a Global Product Manager at Stryker Neurovascular, where he led the product development and global launch of multiple novel medical devices, to treat brain aneurysms and hemorrhagic stroke. Prior to that, Ayush held lead roles in Global Marketing and R&D at both Stryker and J&J, where he designed, developed, trialed, and launched minimally invasive vascular technologies for the treatment of peripheral vascular disease, abdominal aortic aneurysms, May-Thurner syndrome, and wide-necked intracranial aneurysms.
Ayush also served as the Co-President of Minds Matter San Francisco, an education non-profit transforming the lives of 90+ low income, high achieving high school students every year. Ayush rapidly scaled the organization’s operational and fundraising capabilities, while raising over $1M, enabling it to serve more students than ever before. He remains an Associate Board Member of the non-profit.
Ayush’s wide breadth of product management, global marketing, R&D, and fundraising experience also allows him to contribute to the Washington, DC startup ecosystem, where he now provides pro-bono management consulting services for local, rapidly growing companies.
