IndusAge Global Technology Ventures Fund II, S.L.P
IndusAge Global Technology Ventures Fund II, S.L.P. (the “Fund”) is seeking Capital Commitments to create a balanced portfolio of technology-driven, market-centric companies that span the New Market Economy – the emerging demand driven market economies of the developing world and the consequent evolving global market. The Fund is a Luxembourg special limited partnership, with a target of USD 150 Million in Capital Commitments (not to exceed USD 150 Million) with industry standard terms primarily from institutional investors, sovereign funds and high net worth individuals.
The Fund is based on the demonstrable thesis of technology diffusion as well as the “emerging consumer” opportunity. The Fund seeks to invest in technology companies that cater to specific sectors of industry with the specific interest of helping them scale non-linearly based on the current and upcoming technology diffusion cycles.
The Fund relies on a three-dimensional framework of “Insight, Oversight and Foresight” to maximise the return on investments. The Fund relies on the “Insight” of its Investment Manager, Venture / Operating Partners and Senior Advisors to select and invest in startups that have the potential to be game-changers. Having invested, the Fund is explicitly bringing on board an “Oversight” capability through its Venture / Operating Partner structure. This function is based on our proprietary eight vector model (detailed below) that seeks to improve the operational outcomes of the investee company in terms of product and customer focus, financial management, technology, operations, governance, risk and compliance. Finally, the Fund ensures a “Foresight” function to guide the investee company towards strategic relationships, partnerships and customer engagements that increase the chances of follow-on funding and a public or private exit.
The Fund will be differentiated tremendously by the deep operational and investing expertise of the Investment Manager, advisors and venture partners of the Investment Manager (collectively referred to as the “Investment Manager’s Team”), who collectively have over 60 years of experience growing over 100 companies through multiple stages across a variety of sectors on a global basis. Mr. Sriram Viswanathan (“Sriram”), is the President of the Investment Manager of the Fund. IndusAge Capital Managers LLP, led by its Managing Partner, Mr. P. Sudhir Rao (“Sudhir”), is designated as an advisor to the General Partner/Investment Manager. The Investment Manager may also seek advice from, amongst others, (a) IndusAge Advisors Limited and (b) IndusAge Global LLC, an advisory entity owned and managed by Mr. Sriram Viswanathan. In addition, the Fund expects to leverage the skills and expertise of a team of Venture / Operating Partners.
The Investment Manager’s Team includes highly recognised industry veterans, with stellar track records working with early stage and growth stage companies both in India and the U.S. Sriram Viswanathan has held several key positions in management within Silicon Valley’s premier technology leader, Intel Corporation, in areas such as Corporate Development, Strategic Planning and Marketing within various business partners, in addition to leading investments and portfolio management of the industry’s largest investment portfolio within Intel Capital.
