Parag A. Rathi

Principal

Parag has been with River Cities for more than 10 years. He first joined River Cities as an intern while completing his MBA from University of Cincinnati, where he graduated with distinction in December 2007 and was awarded Beta Gamma Sigma. At River Cities, he primarily focuses on Information Technology investments. He is a board member for TaskEasy, a board observer at Canvas Solutions and works closely with portfolio companies NineSigma, DialogTech and reputation.com.

Prior to pursuing his masters at the University of Cincinnati, he was a manager at ICICI Bank (India), where he was responsible for providing working capital and senior debt facilities to small and medium size enterprises. ICICI is the largest private sector bank in India. He received his undergraduate in accounting from Mumbai University, India and also holds a Chartered Accountant degree (India’s equivalent to the CPA). He received a full scholarship from University of Cincinnati to obtain his MBA and was awarded the Best Business Plan in a year-long competition during his studies. In June 2010, he passed the CFA level III exam.

River Cities brought not only their capital and support to the table but also their years of experience with growing companies to bear during their investment with NineSigma. The team remained an important resource for the company throughout our partnership, helping to set strategic direction especially during challenging times that most companies encounter.
