Priya Diwakar Associate Vice President, Investments

Priya Diwakar

T/R partners with product-focused software companies in mission-critical industries.

In many ways, I would say my work is driven by a kind of intellectual humility. I believe it’s important to always be aware of one’s cognitive biases and personal limitations. That awareness can help improve passive and active learning, increase your receptiveness to constructive feedback, and help you better evaluate new opportunities.

At Turn/River, I help lead deal execution, sourcing, and portfolio management, collaborating closely with our team of experts to drive accelerated growth for our companies. In college, I majored in international relations, focusing on cybersecurity and international trade, which led me to further explore my passion for technology through my career. 

T/R partners with product-focused software companies in mission-critical industries.  Our team of career software experts develop operating playbooks that build growth for our portfolio companies. Our unique approach and innovative playbooks make T/R stand out from other private equity firms. 

On the weekends, you can find me at the beach, hiking, or attending local concerts in hopes of discovering new artists. A fun fact about me is that I was born in Australia!
