Few scenarios where we invest in?

  • You are a traditional business house. You see a huge opportunity in playing in the new economy. But you need a partner to structure the right idea & help you build a right organization to your next great opportunity
  • You have a disruptive idea and have built an early version of the product leveraging seed capital/ your own investment. You see some traction / value in the IP but not good enough to get you to next round of financing.  
  • You have a unique and interesting business at a reasonable scale. But you could not raise capital when the going was good. Your story is looking stale, growth on a flat trajectory. You want a partner to help you explore new opportunities that can bring you back to a great position
  • You built a great product and got too early in to a market, only to realize you got your product market fit wrong, worse, you spent all your money in marketing to wrong audience. You need a partner to evaluate and help you pivot
  • Your investors, senior employees, cofounder or your self looking to exit and chase a new opportunity. You need a partner who can come and bring new energy to business that was built with lot of sweat and money
These new opportunities demand not just additional financing but lot of handholding and strategy.  Good news is that we are here to help!.  

Please note that we dont look at early stage companies without some level of market experimentation. We would prefer - 
  • Spinoffs from large business hoses,  Companies with Angel/ VC investment or companies with revenues of 5 crore and above
  • We look for A defendable Technology IP or a strong distribution networks or execution capability

It is becoming harder for Startups to hire. Hiring resources before the clarity on the product direction is not only time consuming but could also mean risk of hiring wrong profiles.
Outsourcing is not an option as the quality of resources available, continuity of resources and motivations are always questionable. Before the validation phase, startups require quick validations, pivots and constant mentoring. These challenges make outsourcing becoming more expensive and less reliable for Indian startups.
Derisking for entrepreneur by creating a pool of options across our portfolio companies.

Restructuring/ transitioning support

All the hard talk and negotiations to cleanup cap table and righly align rewards with value being created

Validation metrics

Building great companies is an art, but knowing whether we are on the right path is a science >>
Based on deep understanding of the business and experience, we work with the Entrepreneur to define validation metrics for each of the businesses. Validation metrics are benchmarked against the current trends of series A financing and a strong foundation for the health of the business.

Validation metrics will ensure that
  • You are raising right money by knowing exact deployment of the money
  • You have clarity on the business and ensure funding works positively for you
  • And possibly a better valuation
We work with our entrepreneurs to customize and define validation metrics for the business and invest to validate if those metrics can be achieved and to what extent. We believe time is money for entrepreneurs and our validation metrics ensure that entrepreneurs spend their time and energy in the right direction
