CEO and Founder
Milti started his career in trading and investment management in 2008, developing a strong grounding in portfolio optimization and investment structuring. Founding an investment management firm in 2011, he built a multi-manager portfolio of systematic trading strategies and developed a risk parity approach to minimise risk and volatility while still generating strong returns.
With a vision of creating positive impact in the world, Milti saw that the most effective way to catalyze change was to harness the power of investment and business to accelerate breakthrough technologies. He founded Drashta Ventures in 2016 to create a collaborative vehicle to achieve this vision, using innovative financial models to provide a low-risk way for investors to create positive impact.
Nicholas has been pioneering mission-driven funds, platforms and enterprises globally for over three decades, bringing a wealth of experience, know-how and relationships to Drashta. He is best known for coining the term “cleantech”, helping mobilize over $6 billion in private equity and building a worldwide innovation ecosystem while serving as the founding chair of Cleantech Group.
Nicholas has developed and advised on public and private sector led sustainability initiatives in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, working with leading investors, corporations and governments. He has authored several books, starting with Investing in Emerging Economies. He believes Drashta can play a vital role in scaling impact solutions.
