You can never be too early to approach us. We value all our interactions with founders. We typically invest from the Seed to Series A stage and aim to be the first institutional investor in your startup’s journey.
We look for transformative ideas that can disrupt the status quo. We like to understand how your idea is leveraging tech to create a business moat, how scalable is your proposition, and how large of an impact can it have.
We keep our investment process as transparent as possible for founders. From our first call to presenting before the Investment Committee and arriving at our decision, the entire process takes around 4-6 weeks. While we cannot invest in most startups we meet, we promise to get back to every founder we interact with valuable feedback.
