We have set up an Angel fund called India Angel Fund .
The core idea is to form a community of like minded people, who will invest money, and also mentor startups to help them scale their venture, and provide a good return on investment to the investors .
We are focussed on entrepreneurs from small towns of india, but we will also invest in entrepreneurs from all over the world .
This space has exploded recently, especially with Mukesh Ambani pivoting from heavy industry OIL to JIO and raising more than $ 68 Billion and still raising, only from digital .
A 25 Lakh rupees investment Got a return of Rs, 10 Crores .
Our Business model is similar to any Angel fund say Indian Angel Network , Mumbai Angles , venture Catalyst,Etc , where we Identify great Startups and People, Invest a small amount, at early stage, Mentor and Groom them and also connect them to potential buyers and late stage investors and hence get a good exit .
The model is very simple : It’s a membership based community and only by invitation .
We will also ( with respect ) ask members to leave if they don’t adhere to community standards .
i sincerely believe that with these unique circumstances of Covid, China, Jio Deal and increasing internet penetration in small town india, we can make a lot of money, while also building a network of Bright , young high energy kids, with fire in their belly on one side, to be guided and mentored by Experienced people like us . This Combination can create wealth on both sides but also help in realising the potential that our country has . The icing on the cake is that thanks to current immigration policies in America and also Covid, Brilliant indians living outside india are either returning now or looking to invest in India with a renewed vigour .
While this economy ka Mantra is Speed and Scale, our Mantra is Money + Mentorship .
We have just made our first investment :
Happy to answer any queries but ideally would love to do short Zoom calls with select group of people to take this forward .
