Seeders – Angel fund and incubation for the tech startups!
I had precisely three envelope entrepreneurial ambitions! I call them envelope as each of them encompass several small ambitious projects. All three are aimed to change the world in my small way and make it a better place:
- To build a successful Internet technology company which can enable millions of businesses
- To bring mass scale change in education system in terms of quality, content, reach and cost
- To become an investor with a difference!
To make sure that my journey at least start off to fulfill all the three ambitions, I (along with my partner Pallav) started up a technology specific angel fund and incubation center called Seeders. This is our attempt to bring finances, infrastructure, resources, connections and mentoring (technical + business) to the aspiring and daring ones.
For the more curious ones -
We will be investing in technology companies which uses Internet as a strategic enabler. These can be software product companies, SaaS projects as well as niche knowledge services. Any wild idea that makes business sense is also welcome! And yes, the venture must be based out of Kolkata or must be willing to shift its base to Kolkata (at least for incubation phase).
More on this project will be soon posted on http://www.seeders.in
So keep tuned in.
