BACKING #MISFITS
SINCE 2008

We are seasoned investors with a keen focus on the vast opportunities in India's technology sector. Our mission is to support trailblazing innovators who venture into uncharted territories and explore ideas with the potential to disrupt traditional ecosystems. Our investment portfolio spans diverse industries, including Fintech, Consumer, B2B, Software, and Hardware, among others, all targeting the Indian market. Each year, we aim to make 10 to 12 strategic investments.

 

Our journey in venture investing began in 2008 as private investors and evolved into Orios Venture Partners in 2013. We are part of three unicorns and several other large stories. Survival, scaling, hiring, shoestring-marketing, pivoting, firefighting, acquisitions offshoring, etc, we have been through them all with our companies.

In addition to financial backing, we go the extra mile by providing all our invested companies access to our 'Founders for Founders' #Misfits Program. This program is specially designed to nurture and support founders by fostering a collaborative community and enabling knowledge exchange.

 

Together, we strive to build a thriving ecosystem where visionary entrepreneurs can flourish and make a lasting impact on India's technology landscape.
