YourNest Venture Capital is a sharply focused 'Pre-Series A' fund house that was established in 2011 to nurture global market leaders from India. It invests in technology-led, enterprise-driven (B2B) and DeepTech (IoT, SaaS) start-ups. We see India swiftly shifting from an IT service outsourcing-hub to an IP/Patent driven 'Product Nation' with compelling investment opportunities.
Our first fund of US$ 14 mn, started in 2012, has several potential companies in its 16-member portfolio that can individually deliver the entire fund corpus and has a visibility of a 5x return to position it in the top decile. Having completely invested this first fund, YourNest is currently raising, and deploying from, its second fund of US$ 45 mn to invest in Indian start-ups with a focus on DeepTech.
In a country where entrepreneurship is encouraged but comes with its own challenges, the Indian Deep-Tech eco-system is rapidly evolving. Adept at identifying daring founders and emerging ideas, the YourNest team of five experienced partners include a business builder, a leadership coach, a global technology leader, an analyst and a technologist. As local Fund Managers they operate as unified enablers to nurture and guide our portfolio companies to global success as they benefit from our experience, networks and resources worldwide to build enterprises that dominate markets.
The YourNest team combines what may well be India’s widest access to prospective investees along with a rigorously prudent selection process that enables us to stay true to our investment thesis. In addition, we give our investors transparent access and exposure to high-growth, under-the-radar tech start-ups in India.
We are excited about bringing together like-minded evangelists, change leaders and creative souls with diverse knowledge and skillsets but a common passion to co-create a better world with the path-breaking use of technology.
