In the last 5 years, India has seen a rise of companies of global potential and acquisitions by global internet giants. This is indicative of the innovative technologies that the entrepreneurs are capable of building. We have launched the PVC II fund looking at the opportunities that the Indian ecosystem has to offer and the gap that we can fill by supporting new businesses that can put India on the global entrepreneurial map. We are very excited to launch the fund and are looking forward to work with some passionate entrepreneurs and bring forth ground-breaking ideas alive.”
