Title and Organization:
Shruti is a managing partner at New Profit, where she co-leads both the Reimagine Learning Fund and Early Learning Fund. In these roles she facilitates collaboratives of social entrepreneurs, funders, researchers, policy influencers, and opinion leaders aligning actions to fundamentally reimagine the future of teaching and learning in America. Prior to that, Shruti led New Profit’s portfolio management practice, ensuring organizations were receiving the support and resources they needed both from New Profit and from the Monitor Institute (now part of Deloitte Consulting) through pro-bono strategic engagements. She also led efforts to measure, evaluate, and report aggregate and organization-specific performance. In addition to fund management responsibilities, Shruti currently serves on the boards of ANet, New Teacher Center, and Peace First, supporting their efforts to create and execute against aggressive plans to accelerate their impact.
Shruti joined New Profit in 2006 while finishing a joint MBA/MPA. Prior to graduate school, she managed a campaign for State Assembly in California while starting up a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping critically ill workers. Before that, she spent seven years working in the private sector, initially as an engineer at Honeywell, an aerospace engine manufacturer, and later in a series of quality management positions at Howmet Castings, an aerospace casting manufacturer, and Jabil Circuit, an electronics manufacturing services company. Shruti holds a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry from M.I.T, an MBA from the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth, and an MPA from Harvard Kennedy School.
When not rigorously pursuing social change, Shruti meditates, loves cooking–especially trying out new dishes–and works hard to spoil her nieces. She is a Fellow of the 15th class of the Pahara - Aspen Education Fellowship and a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
