Spearheading Aditya Birla Group’s New Age initiatives, the cricketer son of Kumar Mangalam Birla plans to take the aluminium-to-apparel conglomerate’s startup-investing play to the next stage through a full-fledged venture fund with external limited-partner backing. How will the experience help him steer the group ahead into a new era?

A century in first-class cricket is no mean feat. To make his mark in the sport he dearly loved, Aryaman Vikram Birla, had to deal with not just the rough and tumble of the intensely competitive domestic-cricket scene, but also the baggage of fame and power that came with the rich legacy of a top business family. After suspending his cricketing pursuits at the age of 22, Aryaman started focusing on building startups within his family business.
