About Us

Designed with a Banker’s and a VC’s mindset

Bridging the Gap

We partner with companies which are at the forefront of innovation with disruptive businesses and ideas, completely revolutionizing how products and services are delivered. We do our bit in your journey by extending strategic capital in the form of debt, tailor made for the requirements of your business, and for capital raising in the future.

More than Venture Debt

Our team of erstwhile bankers and investment professionals, having a combined experience of over seven decades, continually strives to create a strategic advantage for our portfolio companies by bringing the requisite know-how and an extensive network to enable our fellow dreamers to explore traditional sources of finance.

What we look for

We are constantly looking for teams which possess quality and perseverance, and have successfully demonstrated their ideas to early stage investors.

What is Venture Debt?

We are familiar with the classic venture capital investment: early-stage, equity financing to cultivate innovation, revolutionary business models and disruptive ideas. Venture capital offers a trade-off: entrepreneurs get an infusion of strategic capital against a slice of equity, which has indeed been an effective model of funding. But what if capital comes against smaller slice of equity?

Venture debt doesn’t get the media coverage generally reserved for venture capital, although it has played a key role for companies such as Oyo, Swiggy, Byjus, Rivigo, Big Basket, Bira and Lendingkart. Yes, it is debt - typically a non-convertible, senior loan, but it serves as a strategic financial tool to complement venture capital. Incorporated effectively, venture debt can enable businesses to reach growth goals and fund cash burn with minimal equity dilution, extending the runway for their next round of equity infusion. For entrepreneurs, this means higher future capital raising ability and therefore, higher returns for their labour.
