About


We are a technology first investment platform setup with the objective to help propel software product startups in India and the United States. We have three key areas:

Mentoring (Incubator/Accelerator)

We are working with startups, having innovative and enthusiatic members, to help them shape their products and build better value propositions. Our incubation team consists of former entrepreneurs from India and the United states, who have built software products which have been acquired by Fortune 100 technology companies.
Applications are open for our Incubation program. Click here to Apply.

EIR (Entrepreneur-in-Residence)

In our investment experience, we came across phenomenal technology entrepreneurs or single founder technology companies which have a strong product/idea but lack the ability to build a strong team and define the market opportunity. In most cases such companies or entrepreneurs are not able to build scalable organizations or attract external capital. We are trying to fill this gap through our EIR program by combining a technology entrepreneur with a market facing entrepreneur to build a more holistic team and provide our network and relationships to help build an early stage startup.
Applications for our EIR program are also open. Click here to apply

Early Stage (Seed) Funding

We are looking for early stage software technology product startups having balanced teams, a compelling proposition, and a large market opportunity with some proven traction.
