The management team at Spyre includes Murali Krishna as the principal and Abhimanyu Bisht as the operating partner. Krishna, with over 15 years of experience in investment management, has established and headed the Kolte Patil family office and Ronnie Screwvala’s Unilazer Ventures. Bisht, who holds an MBA from ISB, previously served as the CEO at Venture Catalysts, spearheading more than 250 investments in over 100 startups.

The launch of Spyre PropTech Venture Fund signifies a new chapter in proptech investment in India, bringing together industry leaders and investors to foster innovation, empowerment, and unprecedented growth within the sector.
