After Cyrus' stretch in Tata Sons, he didn't reclaim the executives control at SP (his more established sibling Shapoor is the director of the organization). Instead,he had cut out something for himself. He drifted an investment reserve, Mistry Ventures, to back new companies. "Perhaps of the most honed mind I have gone over," said close buddy and accomplice of law office Desai and Dewanji, Apurva Desai.
