Started in April 2006, the Indian Angel Network brings together highly successful entrepreneurs and CEOs from India to invest in startup / early stage ventures with the potential of creating disproportionate value.
The Network, in addition to money, provide constant access to high-quality mentoring, vast networks and inputs on strategy as well as execution. Members, because of their background, are better able to assess the potential and risks at the early stage.
Sectors include agriculture and food processing, banking and financial services, biotech, pharma & life sciences, clean tech and water, education, healthcare, high-end BPO / KPO, internet, IT products & services, media, entertainment and mobile VAS, retail, telecom & embedded domains, travel, tourism & hospitality, and other areas that excite Network members.
Investments range up to $1M (or over with syndication), with exits typically occuring over a 3 to 5 year period through an IPO, M&A or strategic sale.
