Amit Raizada, investor and entrepreneur extraordinaire, has been taking the business world by storm for more than a decade. A little more than 15 years ago, he became not only the founder but CEO of SBV, also known as Spectrum Business Venture. Since that time, Amit has played a crucial part in building a portfolio of more than 60 significant business and investment opportunities. Some of these include technology companies such as Select Quote, T-Mobile, Verizon, and even AT&T.
Not only has Mr. Raizada established a name for himself as an investor and entrepreneur, but he has also transformed himself into a productive and beneficial businessperson. His focus on partnership is most highly evident in his latest endeavor, Vision Venture Partners or VVP. Alongside two other eager business partners, Amit uses VVP to expand into several aspects of business, including the popular world of esports. Team Echo Fox provides a glimpse into the future of gaming and the demand for highly successful online sports teams. Their goal is to mold and produce the most talented players for as many games as possible.
Amit has a heart genuinely dedicated to life beyond business. He understands the value of charity and the significance of giving back. Such an understanding is what led him to launch VGF, also known as the Vision Global Foundation. The VGF is the charitable arm of the VVP and contributes 10% of employee time as well as 10% of net earnings each year. Organizations that have benefited from these contributions include but are not limited to Autism Speaks, The Center for Advanced Heart Care and The University of Kansas Hospital. The VGF also created a partnership with The Orphaned Starfish Foundation. Mr. Raizada felt drawn to this organization due to their mission of helping at-risk youth and orphans in various parts of the world.
Amit Raizada is an intelligent, business-minded entrepreneur who continues to find start-ups that show the greatest potential for success. He is still an active member of the SGV board and maintains an inspiring presence for multiple portfolio companies. His strong passion for giving back makes him more than an investor, more than a businessman, more than an entrepreneur. It makes him a humble man who sees the difference he can make through his work for those less fortunate. Blending smart business with good works has given him the position he finds himself in today.
