We are investors focused on the India technology opportunity. We look to back innovators who are working in unchartered territories, on ideas that have the potential to disrupt the traditional ecosystem. We invest in startups in B2C, B2B and software spaces which target India as a market, and look to make 10 to 15 investments each year.

Our team consists of a mix of entrepreneurs and those with consumer operating experience to help early companies in scaling up operations, hiring, marketing and building a brand story. We have been venture investing since 2008, first as private investors and then as Orios from 2013. We are a part of two unicorns and several other large stories. Survival, scaling, hiring, shoestring-marketing, pivoting, firefighting, fundraising, offshoring, etc, we have been through them all with our companies.

All companies we invest in are taken through our 'Founders for Founders' #Misfits Program.
