Onboarding Ved to the leadership, Nikhil Aggarwal, CEO and Co-Founder, Grip Invest said, “I am glad to welcome Ved to the GRIP Invest family.

In this role, I wish to leverage AI, ML, Web3, and automation to build the brand’s superpowers and leverage data & analytics to deliver disruptive brand outcomes. I look forward to building a high-trust brand by bringing together my learnings across digital & traditional ecosystems.”
