Growth Marketing

I love working on all things Growth!

In the last 8 years, I have been trying to figure things out that I enjoy. And for that, I worked at multiple startups in different roles such as in Operations, Customer Success, Marketing & Product Management. One thing common across all these roles, that I've come to enjoy is working on moving metrics that impact growth.

Some of the metrics that I enjoyed ‘growing’ were those that impacted the business directly. Driving Acquisition through Marketing, Improving Onboarding through Product Management & Increasing usage & revenue through Engagement are a few things I worked hands-on.

In terms of impact, I launched & led GTM for Marketing in North America at, which added over $1 Million in sales pipeline. At Esper, I worked on driving Organic Growth which led to direct sales of about $225,000 in less than 8 months.

I also love building side-projects for the pure joy of moving things from 0-1. Here are a few that I built Startup Journey, Funded Pitch Decks, Chessmate, Discover Webinars, Cursor Track, TEDxYouth@Shantinagar. Some are dead, some are still alive — But I'm always looking to build side projects with new people, Hit me up! if you are interested.

Ownership Mindset

I enjoy ownership that comes with hard problems. It help me craft a path amnongst the unknown.


Having strategized a Go-To-Market for the North American Region, I find it encapsulating to think through on business challenges.


I believe in "It’s not done, Until it ships". The feeling of a greatly executed plan gives me more happiness than the plan itself.

My Testimonials

What my Recommender's Say

"Dynamic, Diligent and one who is bursting with ideas, defines Pranav. I have known Pranav professionally for more than a year now and he has always believed in suggesting new innovative ideas specially in outreach and digital media strategies. He can work independently and is able to follow through to ensure the job gets done and is an excellent asset to my team. Pranav is also quick enough to volunteer to assist in any other company operations, as well. It was a pleasure working with him "

Swetha Suresh

Program Manager @INK talks

"Pranav is a self-starter and a charismatic marketer who not only brought scale, depth, and intelligence to the go-to-market campaigns at Locus but can also clearly figure out the "know-how" of launching new geography altogether. A great team player that takes the team together and steps up when needed. He was instrumental in bringing fantastic results both in terms of creating brand awareness as well as demand generation in North America."

Amisha Sethi

VP Global Marketing @Locus

"Having spent a considerable amount of time knowing Pranav in both professional and social context, I can safely vouch for the skill,passion and grit he brings to almost everything he pursues. There seems to be nothing too hard for Pranav to learn and get extremely good at in a very short period of time. While he chose marketing to devote his full attention to, his focus and drive to excel would make him an asset in any field of his choice. "
