New Entrepreneurs Foundation

Pradeep Raman

Founder & CEO, Dwell Mortgages

The Serial Entrepreneur

We think that Pradeep was born an entrepreneur. Before joining NEF he had already launched three tech start-ups and worked as an engineer for a wireless broadband start-up.

Pradeep joined NEF after his third venture, Adtronik, folded despite a successful pilot phase. He didn’t want to waste time and lament this failure, but learn from it and take on the next challenge and applied to NEF. He was placed with Piton Capital, where he worked alongside the two founding partners and learned about how to construct solid term sheets, negotiating and securing deals. For him his placement was a life-changing experience and allowed him to work with and learn from two accomplished entrepreneurs and investors. He spent two years at his host company before moving on to work at Forward Partners, a VC investing in early-stage start-ups.

He has now left the investment world to follow his passion and founded Dwell Mortgages, a platform and mobile app providing mortgage advice and transaction support for consumers empowering them through choice.

We love seeing him disrupt one of the most established industries. We think he’ll go very far.


NEF opens doors and provides a ladder for one’s ambitions. Great networks are a catalyst to success and NEF is one of the best.
