We think non-linear value creation comes from solutions that haven’t existed in the past. We are looking at flying taxis, alternative energy, the future of work and no-code-low code and space tech - no longer technologies of the future but already here. And we are excited to participate in making these a reality.
We take a people-first approach when we work with early-stage founders. We look for unique and deep insights in their vision. We back ideas for exponential innovations and not those that show incremental improvement over existing solutions. We want products and tech that will make the world simpler and better
Often, we come as the first institutional investor. We are patient partners, well aware that early-stage disruptive innovation is hard.
While our focus is on India, we believe that great ideas are not limited by borders and have invested in startups in the USA, Israel and Singapore.
Founders pushing innovation
We like to see confident yet humble founders who are pushing the limits of imagination in their innovation.
Ideas taking shape
We love visionaries who can communicate the strength and power of their ideas with a great narrative.
People hard at work
We expect our founders to hustle and work harder than us. Or as we say, the only playbook there is, is hard work, a sense of urgency and constant learning.
At the core of our investment strategy is the long-term relationship we expect to build with our founders. As a team, we spend a lot of time getting to know the founders before we invest.
We take a first-principles approach in evaluating technology. Our immersive interest allows us to better gauge the product-market fit and and therefore the scale of impact. We want to see large-scale impact and solutions to universal problems.
Having been a part of the early-stage startup ecosystem ourselves, we have walked in our founders’ shoes. It makes us extremely agile in our engagement and response times.
Access to early customers
Our understanding of the product and its customer value chain allows us to identify the right early partners for our companies. We also connect our founders with industry leaders who can offer invaluable insights.
Hiring early team members
We help our startups hire their first dozen, staying cognizant of the long-term value that these resources can bring.
We leverage our deeply forged relationships in the VC community to help our founders raise follow-on capital.
While our founders stay razor-focused on building their business, we keep them updated on what's happening in their industry, and insights about competition.
We take a keen interest in the progress of our companies, on the product being built and software that’s being developed.
We come in early, with cheques of $100K to $500K. Our current active fund began in 2021 and will be used to invest in 20+ companies and for follow-on investments.
Our investments are multi-disciplinary, and some of the technologies we are supporting include:
.No-Code Low Code
.Future of Work
.Climate Tech and Clean Energy
.Electric and Autonomous Vehicles
++ So much more!
These are a small representation of the technologies our companies are working on.
