#BACKINGMISFITS SINCE 2008
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, Software and Hardware spaces, which target India as a market, and look to make 10 to 12 investments each year.
Our team consists of a mix of entrepreneurs and those with operating experience to help early companies with what matters most: strategy. We do this by ensuring each portfolio company gets the all-important Managing Partner time, lots of it. Managing Partners work closely with founders to devise that all-important winning strategy, fundraising, people strategy and make those senior introductions.
We have been venture investing since 2008, first as private investors and then as Orios from 2013. We are a 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.
All companies we invest in are also taken through our 'Founders for Founders' #Misfits Program.
