    Alternative Capital

    Our first engagement with the team at InnoVen Capital India (formerly SVB India) was in 2012 and have worked with them on more than one occasion. They have been the ideal partner as they understand the challenges we face, and see the same opportunities that we do in building strong category leaders in the online space. Their venture debt business is filling a huge void for businesses like ours that want to access alternate forms of growth capital to rapidly expand while preserving dilution

Overall experience was as sweet as the cheapest form of capital we could get from InnoVen Capital, and we prevent giving away equity otherwise.

    Innovative Model

    InnoVen Capital India fills in a major gap that existed in the startup ecosystem. New age start up companies are mainly run by risk capital provided by the venture capital community. Traditional banking is not able to support this requirement but with their innovative funding model, InnoVen Capital exactly bridges this gap. Little wonder InnoVen Capital India acts as a lifeline to cross over crucial gaps. In our personal experience the team is very professional and easy to work with; An excellent small team of skilled people who understand and support the business in all possible ways
