Ace Shooter Abhinav Bindra debuts in business; launches Incubation Fund

Olympics shooting champ Abhinav Bindra has set up an incubation fund called Shooting Star LLP, in equal partnership with consulting firm Franchise India and an initial investment of $2 million and will be expanded further.

"This is my first widespread and extensive business venture. A start-up is very much like an athlete's life... There's no guarantee for success," said Bindra.

The ace shooter, who has also been the first ever Indian to win an individual gold medal in Olympics, further added, "There are only challenges but that's a life I've lived for the last 20 years. Shooting is a great sport but not where you can make sustained economic benefits over a lifetime. I have been contemplating ‘What More’ and that is where the Shooting Star LLP’s Idea was born.”

Aiming to back innovative ventures, Shooting Star LLP welcomes young entrepreneurs to share brilliant ideas with the firm.

Franchise India would bring the infrastructure and growth support across India and overseas at Shooting Star LLP.

Elaborating on its role, Gaurav Marya, Chairman, Franchise India and partner in Shooting Star LLP, said, "The fund will be used for making investments in such service oriented start-ups that have scalable formats and specialized domain expertise such as emerging sports academies, sports injury, Rehab, tech, equipment, training, health apps, child development, holistic wellness, organic food and dairy.”
