How Artha India Ventures tasted blood with an exit in OYO Rooms

A 150-times exit on investment in OYO Rooms, and with over 53 investments, Artha is moving from a family office to a venture fund. Startups take note. They say if one has worked with an oil company, they would know the foundation on which the modern civilisation is built.

Artha Venture Fund I

Artha Group has launched its first institutional fund – Artha Venture Fund-I (AVF-I). It has received SEBI’s approval to operate as a Category I Alternative Investment Fund and is currently looking to raise INR 200-crore. This fund will invest seed capital in 40-45 companies and participate in follow-on rounds up to; & including Series A. The Fund is being co-sponsored by Artha India Ventures (the family office of Mr Ashok Kumar Damani and Mr Ramesh M Damani) and Singularity Ventures (the family office of Mr. Madhusudan Kela).

AVF I is a hands on investor that consists of an exceptional network of entrepreneurs, investors, operators, academicians, visionaries and advisors that our founders can have meaningful access to. Currently we are on the lookout for startups with innovative and disruptive business models that have a high growth potential and a team with the ability & experience to execute their plans.
