Sandeep Dalmia


Sandeep Dalmia (Managing Director and Co-Founder, Stanza Living) has spent the majority of his working life with the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) and as a Principal, got the opportunity to work across geographies like the US, South East Asia and India. Over the years, he gained extensive experience in operations management, go-to-market, sales strategy, program management and large-scale transformation management. He was also selected among the top 60 BCG consultants globally, as part of the firm’s prestigious Ambassadorship Program. While consulting diverse businesses across sectors, Sandeep was bitten by the entrepreneurial bug and has ever since wanted to build a first principles-led proposition from the ground up. The first manifestation of his entrepreneurial interests was the Greenshoots Program – an accelerator for startups in India, that he co-founded at BCG.

In 2017, Sandeep, along with his friend Anindya Dutta, co-founded Stanza Living with an aim to redefine the shared living experience for millions of people migrating for better higher education and career opportunities. Stanza Living is a professionally managed, hospitality-led and technology-enabled shared living concept present across 10 Indian cities and growing. A technology enthusiast, Sandeep has driven an industry-leading engineering framework for the business, driving operational efficiencies, customized consumer experience and cost leadership.

Sandeep has an MBA from IIM Ahmedabad. He also holds a degree in Computer Engineering from the Delhi College of Engineering.

He is passionate about road biking and enjoys playing poker with his friends. He loves to spend time with his 17-month-old daughter, travelling and exploring new geographies with his wife.
