Ms. Shavdia is also active with deal structuring, underwriting, and monitoring of the firm’s portfolio companies.
“Bhairvee’s promotion reflects her leadership in building and strengthening our impact platform, the Gainful Jobs Approach, alongside her demonstrated investment acumen, both of which have played an important role in our firm’s growth,” said Tim Bubnack, managing partner of HCAP. “We are confident that she will continue to provide value to both our investors and portfolio companies and look forward to her continued contributions.”
Prior to joining HCAP, Ms. Shavdia was the Zahn Innovation Center at San Diego State where she created and led the school’s social enterprise incubator platform. Earlier she was with H.I.G. Capital in London where she was active in the origination, analysis, and due diligence of private equity and distressed debt transactions. She has a BS in economics from Wharton and an MBA from Columbia.
