Seedfund is an early-stage venture capital firm with about $70 million under management. Bharati Jacob, Mahesh Murthy and Pravin Gandhi combined their early-stage investment experience to start Seedfund in 2006.
According to Bharati Jacob, Managing Partner, Seedfund’s strength is that it invests in areas that it understands. The VC firm has stayed focused on early-stage investing and on India market opportunities. It begins with $500,000 or $1 million cheques and goes up to $5 million in multiple rounds, and picks up a significant minority stake in the ventures it invests in.
