There are so many startup and unicorn stories in India today – and we know there will be more tomorrow.
Consider Freshworks which began eleven years ago and is now a huge firm with more than 3,800 team members and offices all over the world.
Mr. Girish Mathrubootham started Freshworks without any special help, nor did he come from wealth.
“We were only a six-person company operating out of a tiny garage in Chennai over eleven years ago. I didn’t have a gilded CV or come from a wealthy household, but that didn’t stop me from dreaming big.”
“I recognise that not every creator is as lucky, which is why as an angel investor, I have funded more than sixty startups,” he continued.
Now Girish Mathrubootham of Freshworks, Mr. Manav Garg of Eka Software, Mr. Shubham Gupta ex-Matrix, and Mr. Avinash Raghava ex-Accel have teamed together to establish a founders-first company called Together Fund in an effort to boost entrepreneurial enthusiasm in India.
The fund, which has a US$ 85 million initial capital, aims to assist India’s finest SaaS entrepreneurs in building, scaling, and winning together, therefore creating India as a true product country. Together Fund is India’s first and only venture capital fund run by founders. They operate some of India’s most well-known SaaS businesses in addition to being founding partners of Together.
The future of startups and innovation is looking good for India.
