LV Fuel was created in 2021 as an investment syndicate for the founders on LetsVenture to give back to the ecosystem. Over the past 7+ years, around 700+ founders have raised funds via LetsVenture and built businesses across sectors and created wealth & employment opportunities.
Through LV Fuel, the LV founders syndicate seek to give back to the ecosystem via capital, experience & skills. If you are a founder, our founder syndicate would love to invest in your dream and have you join our family to pay it forward with the collective goal of enabling you to successfully scale your startup.
We are India’s largest founder driven investment syndicate formed by India’s largest platform for private market investing - LetsVenture. These founders have come together from diverse sectors (FinTech to D2C to SaaS to SpaceTech to AgriTech to “add-your-sector-here”-tech). From consumer tech to frontier tech, we have all the expertise under one roof.
We founders have been in your shoes. We have walked the entire mile and overcame multiple challenges. In our experience, at an early stage, having a partner who comes from an operator background can help you in achieving faster growth and institutionalising processes to scale sustainably.
LV Fuel also aims to invest in a minimum of 20 companies initially and 20% of the investments will be geared towards women entrepreneurs and founders from Tier 2 and 3 cities. The founder-investors at LV Fuel can also invest in as many startups as they like with no upper limit.
A syndicate is an investment vehicle that allows a group of investors to collectively invest their capital in your startup.
