If you’re the songwriter who's hungry, alone, and far from home,
We’re the producers who'll give you the cheeseburger and the new Rolling Stone.
And together, we'll create the perfect track.
In slightly more prosaic terms, if you’re the rockstar with the passion, the drive, and the great idea, we’re the guys who will give you the resources to make that idea come to life. We’ll add our time, money, and experience to your blood, sweat, and tears, and - with a little bit of luck - we might be able to create some magic together.
And here are the insipid details:
- We don't care what sector your idea belongs to, as long as it's brilliant and it's B2B
- We are an early stage fund - we'll invest 1 to 7 Cr, depending on your need, evolution, and our mood, of course
- We dig tech, deep tech and deep(er!) tech
The key tenets of our approach
Respect for the entrepreneur
We’ve been there, done that, and know how nerve-wrackingly and back-breakingly hard it is. We respect the time spent every morning going over ideas on the throne, ideas that were just crude halfdrunken scrawls on a bar napkin. We feel grateful for an opportunity to be part of the beauty that entrepreneurs create, and if you ever catch us being cocky or disrespectful, shoot us.
We need to “get it” to invest
You may have the best idea since sliced bread, but we might be too stupid to understand it – that’s our shortcoming, not yours. We might move on from it but hope you don’t.
We’re a tad bit nosy
This nosiness could range from “no nosiness” (ostensibly) to “water cooler” kind of nosiness to nosiness that bruises. We’ve made a Pandora’s box worth of mistakes in our lives, and if nothing else, we can help you avoid at least those with our wide-ranging nosiness.
We will support you to hell and back
We will question you, push you, and pain you, but we are rational, and if you can show us the wisdom of your ways, we will back down. (Or, we might ask you to settle it with Rock-Paper-Scissors.) There will be times when we kill you on the inside, but we will always defend you to death on the outside.
Here are some of the start-ups we’ve loved and become a part of. And yes, the nosiness did help – or so we’d like to believe.
