About VU

Our Founder

Late Shri V B Padode

Shri V B Padode founded the Dalal Street Investment Journal (DSIJ) in 1986 (a leading financial magazine with a loyal following of more than 150,000 readers). During his successful journey of being an accomplished journalist, educator and entrepreneur, he earned his reputation to be a hard worker, a solution seeker, a solution provider, a super negotiator, a strong observant, a meticulous analyst, a patriot, a perennial optimist, an entrepreneur, and a fine human being with a die-hard attitude. Shri Vijaysingh B Padode departed for the heavenly abode on August 13, 2019.

Chhatrapati Shivaji

The founder of the Maratha Empire, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, dominated much of the Indian Subcontinent in the 17th and 18th century, extended from Tamil Nadu in the south, to Peshawar, Pakistan in the north, and Bengal in the east. Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj was fearless, agile, intelligent, a believer of meritocracy, ambitious and had a die-hard attitude.
