SRI Capital is an early stage venture capital firm focused on funding innovative startups primarily in the US and in India. We will also consider global startups that are looking to enter the US market or the Indian market.
Our two main areas of interest are:
- Enterprise software and deep tech: We are interested in US/Indian startups developing applications and technology for sale to the global enterprise market, preferably in a subscription model with built-in scalability for rapid growth. We like capital efficient product development teams, led by technology founders, serving niche market segments.
- Consumer tech and tech-enabled consumer offerings: Indian/US startups that are looking to capitalize on the Digital India story to bring innovative products and services to middle income Indian consumers are interesting to us. We especially like startups that have a strong offline customer acquisition strategy.
We are usually the first institutional investor in a company. We invest between $500,000 and $3,000,000 for a meaningful minority interest and are happy to lead the round. We are active investors, providing support to the founders beyond just a board role.
We will also selectively do Series A investments, either as a lead investor or as a co-investor with other VCs or strategic investors.
