Early Days

In 2006, Bharati Jacob, Mahesh Murthy and Pravin Gandhi combined their early stage investment experience to start Seedfund. They were soon joined by Paula Mariwala and Sanjay Anandram.

Together, they set off to make a visible difference in backing early-stage companies across sectors. With “a little money and a lot of attention” Seedfund started plugging the gap in the ecosystem, by providing guidance, perspectives, ideas, and connections.

our contribution

"We have seeded the early stage ecosystem across diverse sectors in India. We have invested in healthcare, education, rural marketing, e-commerce, technology, and many more. Our companies have left their mark in these sectors, often created new ones altogether, and redefined the market paradigm for the Indian consumer."

  • Redbus brought the convenience of ticket booking to online consumers across multiple operators. Redbus helped bring organisation to a chaotic industry and provided same conveniences to a bus traveller as an airline traveller has.
  • Jeevanti and Vaatsalya have made a significant impact on the base of the pyramid population of India by taking critical yet unavailable healthcare to remote rural areas.
  • MyDentist adopted a retail structure for dental care, creating wide-spread dental awareness, and making otherwise expensive dental services more affordable and accessible.
  • Carwale was India’s first car portal to create wide-spread consumer-awareness that led to more informed buyers. Carwale also improved consumer confidence, by giving them competitive and clear information on car-related secondary services, such as insurance.
