Supporting ambitious founders tackling complex, large markets with innovations that improve global efficiency

Investment Approach

What we look for?

Visionary founders solving for complex & large markets

We seek out early-stage ventures led by talented founders who demonstrate a clear vision for tackling large markets with scalable solutions. Our preference lies in backing startups possessing distinctive IP that offers a sustained competitive advantage & creates long-term value through global growth and influence

 

As an early-stage venture capital fund, we typically invest in pre-seed or seed stage companies, with investments ranging from $150k to $1 million (₹1 to ₹8 Crores) per startup, aiming for a 5% to 15% stake. This allows us to provide extensive support for follow-on fundraising, technology development, talent acquisition, and global expansion efforts
