We do investments, provide strategy/advice and help set up and manage funds. Our focus markets are India, China and Africa. We work in all sectors so long as the entrepreneur and the opportunity stand out.
Own not the most, but the best....
We take a principal position and make proprietary investments on our balance sheet, take sweat equity positions and syndicate our investments, where appropriate, to a select group of investors. Our select group of investors control/manage more than $500 billion in assets.
"We were young, but we had good advice and good ideas and lots of enthusiasm. Our success has really been based on partnerships from the very beginning."
Bill Gates, founder of Microsoft Corporation
We believe that the right "strategy" can make most businesses flourish. We also believe that timing is everything in business. We take pride in our portfolio companies and add value through bringing the right strategy to make the entrepreneur a sure winner. Our strategy involves transaction management, enabling local and global growth, managing IPOs and M&As, positioning in the market, strategic partnering, further fund raising and finding the right management team among other things.
"Managing money requires more skill than making it."
We support and help aspiring fund managers with the right skill set and experience to set up and manage investment funds. We also manage our own funds.
"The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary."
We welcome any entrepreneur / manager who has a vision we appreciate, a business we like and an ambition that matches our own.
We work in the spirit of partnership with our portfolio companies and make their problems our own.
We are a team and enjoy the risks and rewards as a team.
We believe in fundamentals of any business - management, prudence, growth prospects, value enhancement, execution and exit.
We LOVE our job and believe in having fun while making money for our entrepreneurs and a little bit ourselves.
