Shruti Ajitsaria

Head of Fuse, Allen & Overy

Category: Professional & Financial Services

Shruti started Fuse – Allen & Overy’s tech innovation space – to identify legaltech, regtech and dealtech companies to foster cooperation between lawyers and clients. This has had a profound impact on the sector and is enabling lawyers to touch and feel technologies which would otherwise remain alien to them.

Shruti used her most recent maternity leave to undertake the FT Diploma in Non-Executive Directorships and a 3 month course for entrepreneurs at Google Campus, as well as being selected to partake in the Judicial Support Scheme (aimed at increasing diversity in the judiciary).

She is a governor at the Haberdashers’ Aske’s Schools in Elstree, a member of the Fundraising Committee of Noah’s Ark Hospice and a TEDx speaker. She also manages a sector-agnostic portfolio of private investments and is currently on BBC 2’s Million Pound Menu as a restaurant investor.
