Living our values

"In my sophomore year at IIT Kanpur, I was a part of the Aeromodelling club. Our proposal for entering an international competition was rejected by the managing committee, who said we weren't ready to represent IIT Kanpur on such a platform. We collected the team, analyzed the feedback constructively, worked on it for a full year, and brought back the 3rd prize in the competition the next year. This grit and resolve are what make the Apax value of 'creating impact through insight and tenacity' resonate most with me."

Rachit's Story

After his two-year tenure at McKinsey, Rachit was looking for new challenges and learnings when he joined Apax. The opportunity to learn the nuances of corporate finance which are core to grow any business, and to work with talented management teams towards creating true value, are what resonate with him. Apax’s collaborative work environment with mentoring peers make him feel at ease. When not at work, he can be found meddling with his quadcopter and drone.
