In the late 1990s, he was part of the startup team of ARC International, responsible for communications, working with the investor ecosystem, taking it to Silicon Valley and to a successful IPO on the London Stock Exchange.

He subsequently co-founded The Chilli in 2002, which was one of the first online media providing practical guidance and advice for tech entrepreneurs, investors and advisors. This was influential in the tech community, for its fundraising tips, role model profiles, due diligence on emerging companies, and opinion which helped shape government entrepreneur policy.

More recently, Nitin was editor of Go4Venture, a research platform enabling investors and advisors to interact with and invest in scaleup tech companies across Europe.

He is currently also a European correspondent for a leading US tech magazine, and holds a number of non-executive and advisory roles with public sector organisations and private companies, and is a mentor at the London Business School Entrepreneurship Summer School.
