Syllogic Consultants was started by Venkat and Vrata in 2012 as a result of a deep-felt conviction that their energies needed to be channelled into an awakening India. Foregoing insipid and comfortable corporate jobs, they embarked on putting their cumulated experience at the service of the SME sector for the simple reason that this is where they believe their efforts can have an impact on an awakening India.
They where part of the Ana Hazare movement against corruption, chanting and marching in the streets to voice their call for change. Wanting to do more they embarked on this adventure.

She is currently collaborating with Syllogic Consultants in replicating a model for rural dental health care delivery, which has been very successful in the bio-region of Auroville.

In the financial inclusion space, Jayshree is engaged in building a licensing partnership framework to replicate a model for financial inclusion built by IFMR Rural Finance. She also collaborates with an action research group incubated by IIT Madras called Okapi Research and Advisory Services. In this capacity, her current project includes assisting an organisation engaged in craft based livelihoods in readiness to scale and attract investments. In her previous roles, Jayshree was the Chief Executive Officer of IFMR Mezzanine Finance and involved in the initial days of structuring USD 100 mn microfinance debt fund to be advised by IFMR Advisory Services Private Limited (now called IFMR Investment Advisors).
