  • Shishir Prasad

    Editor, ET Prime

    In my past stints at Forbes India, the Economic Times, Business Standard and Businessworld, I have written on technology, finance, management, and strategy. My colleague Pravin Palande and I won the Inaugural IE Business School Award for economic journalism. I have also spent time outside of journalism, most recently at TCS. Each of those assignments has given me a better understanding of how companies take business decisions and a deeper understanding of the business of technology. When not writing on a deadline I love to sit down with a good book; Catch 22 and The Man Without Qualities are two all-time favourites of mine. Indian classical music gets my number, and to make sure I don’t get worse for the wear there is nothing better than a good game of squash. Twitter: @shishir1969 | Email:

  • Tanmoy Goswami

    Associate Editor, ET Prime

    My 13-year career stands on four pillars: instinct for great stories, passion for communication, love for team building, and knack for solving problems beyond job descriptions. I get to put all four to work as employee#1 of ET Prime. Here, I have done everything from scouting for talent to shaping the product to sourcing furniture for the team. Before this, among other things, I launched a now-defunct innovation magazine, taught college students the nuances of professional communication, and led editors at Fortune India. I have also reported on the state of India’s coders - for which my colleague Nirmal John and I won the IE Business School Journalism Award - corruption in the Bengali film industry, and other assorted curiosities.

  • Aesha Datta

    Assistant Editor - Environment, ET Prime

    Standing at 5-foot-and-a-wee-bit, I tend to look at the world from a different angle, literally and metaphorically. At ET Prime, my work is to write on environment and climate change in a way that conveys the urgency around these subjects, without alarmism or agendas. Having traveled to the remotest corners of India and interacted with communities truly affected by climate change, I am excited about the power of journalism in creating change on the ground. Before ET Prime, I covered environment and health, among other subjects, at the Hindu Business Line. My ultimate dream is to become an ecologist. Twitter: @aeshadatta | Email:

  • Ankita Mehrotra

    Senior Graphic Designer, ET Prime

    From e-commerce and advertising to media, in my seven-year career I have enjoyed beautifying all kinds of content with great design. I love design for its practical value too: Visual relief helps a reader better absorb a complex story. Every design assignment is a new challenge: While at FoodPanda, I got exposed to the nuances of design for a mobile audience, at ET Prime, data is often the heart and soul. Here's to awesome stories.

  • Anuj Gupta

    Lead - Healthcare, ET Prime

    A dental surgeon by training, I have worn many hats including that of a business consultant and now a journalist. At ET Prime, I will write on disruptors in healthcare and life sciences. Earlier, I worked with EY, helping global healthcare companies provide better care to their patients. Last-mile delivery of health services and innovation in medical technology are ideas that excite me. I feel healthcare stories in the media often tend to be too complex. My goal will be to simplify them, since healthcare isn’t a subject that should be restricted to experts. Food and motorcycling fuel me when I am not at work. Twitter: @anujreports | Email:

  • Arti Singh

    Assistant Editor - Fintech, ET Prime

    I am a born-again business journalist. After 10 years in the profession, I took up a corporate-communications job where I couldn’t survive two months. Help came in the form of a spot in ET Prime’s reporting team. Here, I chronicle the evolution of fintech, one of the buzziest sectors in India today. The rise of startups taking on financial leviathans, a large unserved market, and a government grappling with policies and regulations make for blockbuster stories, some of which I hope to tell. In my previous avatars, I have covered fintech at NewsCorp VCCircle and enterprise technology and startups at Firstpost. If you have a view on how the idea of money is changing, and changing us with it, I'd love to hear. Twitter: @artijourno | Email:

    I thrive in rigorous, old-fashioned editing and the organised chaos of production operations. My typical day is spent in pushing reporters and designers just that little bit harder so that our stories become that much better, and figuring out the intricacies of, say, pharma pricing. What fascinates me is that there's no letting up in the effort that goes into turning out a good story, whatever its shelf life.

    I've been in the profession for nearly 10 years. My first venture in the energy sector was covering oil and gas for Bloomberg UTV.

Being a television reporter, I was lucky to break stories on the Cairn-Vedanta deal, the court battle among the Ambani brothers for gas allocation, and the petrol-decontrol reforms, among others. After Bloomberg UTV, I worked with Financial Express covering energy, later heading the business bureau at The New Indian Express and The Statesman.
