Radha Kapoor Khannagbs17
Co- Founder & Executive Director, DICE District in Mumbai
Design Thinker, Innovation Evangelist, Creative Entrepreneur and Founder of The Three Sisters: Institutional Office (“TTS:IO”), Radha wears more than one hat in her professional endeavours with diverse interests driven by her creative passions.
TTS:IO is one of the few institutionally organized family offices in India formed with a stated objective of centralizing investment management, philanthropy and legacy sustainability.
Under Radha's leadership and guidance, the in-house core team in Mumbai and Delhi, is committed to incubate / make strategic investments in 'new age' creative businesses in India, with long term capital commitment, focused on high growth sectors like Education, Media & Entertainment, Retail, Sports, Technology and Urban Infrastructure.
Born a right brained person, and having a keen eye for design from her early days, Radha pursued a degree in fine arts majoring in Communication Design at the Parsons School of Design, New York. She is the first Parsons alumnus to have collaborated with the school to set up the Indian School of Design and Innovation in association with Parsons, New York, in 2013, in Mumbai.
With alternative careers and entrepreneurship on the rise, Radha saw this as an opportunity to cut her teeth into the education industry and set up a platform for both design and innovation to flourish.
ISDI has branched out into specialisations with high profile partners to bring this vision of Radha’s to life. In addition to the association with Parsons, ISDI has tied up with global communication services giant, WPP, and launched the ISDI WPP School of Communications in July 2015. The school looks to nurture and bridge the creative talent gap faced in India.
To further stimulate innovation and technology led by design, Radha set up ISDI ACE (accelerating creative entrepreneurs) in a partnership with Microsoft Ventures to foster the start-up ecosystem in India, in 2015.
