Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect

Mark Twain

A sustainable business, starts with a great team. Entrepreneurial teams that understand what consumers need and find a way of bridging the gorge.

Teams that are not fearful of failure. Co-founding teams that don’t build businesses to simply get funded, but businesses that need funding. They know that 90% of all businesses fail in the first 5 years and yet, are passionate about taking the plunge. They prepare a robust business plan, hire a great team, motivate them, get the funding and ensure that prudent business practices are put into place. They sell their product/service to the best of their ability and can pivot their plans based on the feedback they get.

When teams do not have the fear of failure hanging over their head, access to funds to reach milestones and access to business wisdom, they make decisions that are best for the long-term sustainability of the business.

We help Entrepreneurial teams build a long term sustainable business. We invest in the seed and early stages of a startup, with follow on commitments up to Series A.

Our investment methodology is a unique amalgamation of maintaining strong capital positions and hedging the risks inherent to the process of investing. In a first of its kind concept in India, we invest in startups through the returns on our investments in clean energy assets. The realizations from our startup portfolio, in the form of exits, flow back into our clean energy assets. Thereby creating a self-sustaining investment-realization cycle.
