Milti Chryssavgis

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 minimize risk and volatility while still generating strong returns.

Driven to create positive impact in the world, Milti determined that the most effective way to catalyze change was to harness the power of investment to accelerate breakthrough technologies and business models. He founded Drashta Ventures in 2016 as a collaborative vehicle to accelerate impact solutions, using innovative financial models to mitigate risk and allow investors to align their capital with their values at scale.
