Launching Untitled Ventures
Apr 14, 2022
Vedica and I are excited to announce the launch of our firm, Untitled Ventures. Untitled Ventures is an early stage fund for the Indian subcontinent and will invest $25k - $50k in companies where we (and our newsletter community) can help companies. If you’ve been following us for a while and have seen our syndicate in the past, this has been a natural progression for us. We love backing founders and helping them tell their stories and are excited to grow as investors with the firm alongside them.
Our mission still stays the same:
We believe start-ups have only begun to scratch the surface of their potential contribution to the Indian economy -- a story that is still playing out and is, as yet, untitled.
We are excited to play a small role in this story.
As we have talked about in the past, the early stage ecosystem in India has evolved significantly. It sis now a lot more collaborative with the proliferation of party rounds and emergence of products like RUVs. Founders love raising from other founders and operators, who can actually help out in specific ways, as opposed to the popular VC meme.
We are super grateful to all our subscribers and Syndicate LPs for supporting us over the years and have reserved some LP slots for the community. Being a 506(c) fund means we can talk about the fund in public and raise from the community. Unfortunately, you will need to be be an accredited investor to participate.
We are well aware of the lack of venture capital that goes to female founders in India, as well as the lack of female angels, GPs and LPs and are thus removing our minimum investment for people who identify as women (thanks to Radhika for the idea). Currently only ~16% of our LPs are women and we’d like to improve that. Priority will also be given to long-time readers of the newsletter and people who have backed our syndicate deals in the past. If you’re interested in investing in Untitled, please fill out this form.
We’d be remiss not to thank all the people who have supported us through our evolution — our readers first and foremost, our LPs for backing us, and the founders we've worked with in the past.
If you’re building a company, raising or even thinking through an idea we would love to chat with you!
