LetsVenture turns 10. It has been a decade since we began on our journey towards organizing the private markets in India.
For over a decade, LetsVenture has been working to make startup fundraise easy for founders and investors. Over 10 years, we have built solutions for both investors and founders to ensure fund accessibility and organize the private markets.
Private market for investing had been largely confined among selected angels who had enough appetite to bet on one of the riskiest asset classes. But sentiments have now changed owing to the growth opportunity leading to many investors including family offices, CXOs, operator-investors also betting on the early-stage startups.
On this journey, LetsVenture has evolved into a company catering to the needs of founders and investors. We have created the complete suite of solutions for startup investments from early stage to growth stage.
We know that access to capital is a challenge for founders. Simultaneously, access to good startups is a gap for investors. We have been and will continue working towards bridging this gap and help right investors associate with right founders to ensure a valuable partnership.
Here is an overview of how LetsVenture is facilitating people across India and beyond to be a part of the country’s bustling startup ecosystem.
Much like the challenges in accessing capital for startups, investors also find it difficult to get connected with good startups that match their vision and expertise. With our following services, we continue to stand by the investors and guide them through their investing journey.
In our most recent move to support our participating investors, we reduced Carry, earned by general partners/fund managers, in our case Leads from 20% to 10% on the LetsVenture public platform. This move was in line with our vision to ensure better returns and wealth creation opportunities for our participating investors.
