Nikita Sunilkumar

Entrepreneur-in-Residence

“My search fund journey taught me more than I can appreciate about investing, operating and leadership – and there is still much more to learn! Each searcher and each deal is unique, but the search fund community collectively has been a source of so much knowledge and guidance for me as a solo searcher operating under challenging circumstances. Now I’m excited to support others as a thought partner, confidant or resource (or all three), and by helping more diverse searchers and CEOs make their mark in this industry.”

Nikita is based out of Trilogy’s office in Bellevue, Washington – she joined the team after a successful exit as CEO of Crown Health, formerly a Trilogy portfolio company. She is a board member for Indigo Physical Therapy. She transitioned to search from consulting at the Boston Consulting Group and was previously a Production Engineer for The Boeing Company. She has a Bachelor’s and Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Southern California and an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.

Nikita is passionate about increasing the pipeline of women and minority searchers and helping others find sustainable and fulfilling career paths within the search community. She is a longtime PNW resident and enjoys exploring the many scenic highways and byways of the region with her husband and their small red dog, Louis, in a converted cargo van. She enjoys cooking, gardening and crafting and hopes to claim proficiency in one of these pursuits someday.
