Seedfund – Leading Early Stage Venture Capital Firm

April25

Last week I meet up with Shailesh who is representing Seedfund in Delhi and must say was pleasantly surprised to learn that they are even looking at concept stage ideas backed of course with mature teams. So what are some of the other things that make Seedfund stand apart besides being voted as the “Best Early Stage Investor at the Apex Awards”….

Backed by a formidable team with many years of experience in founding, running companies in addition to venture experience. Already invested in a dozen companies including recognizable names like redbus, afaqs, carewale, vaatsalya etc. Presence of a incubation center both physical/virtual where they house a few fledgling companies till they are old and strong enough to fly out and be on their own. The process to apply for incubation is the same for funding i.e. due diligence remains the same.

Interested folks can apply for funding through Seedfund and if they believe your business is interesting – and worthy of funding eventually by Seedfund itself, they might either offer you the full Seedfunding – or a tranched amount where you first graduate through the Incubator process, where we have an additional set of advisors and then automatically get the rest of the full-term funding- not a bad deal eh??

Key takeaway – They are open to early stage investments and are prepared to take the risks provided there is a solid team and skin in the game. Rumor has it they decided to invest in Redbus when it was at a concept stage not when the business was well proven :)
