Seed Fund

GIVE
TECHNOLOGY
PURPOSE

We partner with exceptional founders harnessing the power of technology to build inclusive solutions for India’s Next Half Billion.

OUR THEORY
OF CHANGE

We believe that technologies and platforms such as JAM, and the India Stack, have vastly reduced the cost structures to deliver products in finance, health, education and livelihood - enabling significant market expansion extending to previously unviable markets.

Winning in these markets would require fundamentally different products and customised business models. Our belief is that new players will bring in the f resh thinking, creativity and entrepreneurial energy required to succeed in these markets. When they succeed, they will increase the depth of inclusion and formalization in the country.

Our
Approach

We believe that the best and brightest can use technology to solve some of India’s hardest challenges. We realize the need for patient & sustained financial support, strategic & tactical Guidance and access to networks in building companies of consequence.

  • Patient and
    Committed Capital

We deploy patient capital committed to de-risking audacious ideas and innovations and building enduring businesses.

OUR
STAGE
