Our Founder

Mr. Ravindran Govindan

Armed with 45 years worth of real-world expertise in building companies from the ground up, Ravi founded Mercatus Capital in 2006, to nurture and invest in the next generation of start-up businesses.

Ravi’s other successes range from growing his own law practice into a multi-partnership firm, to building properties across the Asia Pacific region, to being instrumental in the launches of several IPOs on the Australian and Singaporean stock exchanges.

Ravi was also the Executive Chairman and President of Fisher Scientific Inc. for the Asia Pacific region.

Currently, Ravi — having taken a back seat to focus on his family and personal interests — is the Chairman Emeritus of Mercatus Capital, where his philanthropic support and expertise remain vital.
