Mitali Srivastava set up Utopeia six years ago along with Sudarshan Banerjee, Sean Coalaco and Ayan Chakraborty. Krishna Padhye and Krishnaraj Bhat later joined her as managing partners.

*Letter begins*

I have resigned from Utopeia in protest at the dismissive attitude of the leadership towards the alleged survivors that came forward as part of #MeToo. Utopeia is not legally bound to investigate the allegations against the co-founder in question, but I believe there was a moral obligation. As Utopeia’s co-founder, I cannot share a value system that chose not to conduct an enquiry into this matter, and neither will I endorse a culture where sexual harassment of any kind is treated lightly.
