I recently joined Battery Ventures to help with their India investment strategy and wanted to reach out to the Venturewood community with this post. Battery Ventures made its first investment in a purely India based product company in Jan 2005 in Tejas Networks India Pvt Ltd. We are close to announcing two additional investments in India based companies over the next couple of months. My focus will be to make an additional 1-2 investments before the end of the year.
Please feel free to connect with me either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through my skypeid: ramneekgupta.
Looking forward to interacting with and being a part of the Venturewood community.
Battery Ventures has been one of the top tier VC firms since 1983 and has over $2B under management. We are currently investing out of Battery Ventures VII which is a $450MM fund. Some of our successful investments in the past include Akamai, Qtera, Neoteris, Pixelworks and MetroPCS. In India, we are interested in technology and technology enabled services companies. Between myself and my partners, Mark Sherman and Carl Stjernfeldt (who devote considerable time to India), we are focused on both software and hardware opportunities/companies that are either based in India or have the US-India hybrid DNA.
