Taking forward the Group’s motto of “Never Stop Rising”, the Mahansaria Family Office is an active participant in India’s start-up ecosystem. Besides being invested in several reputed Venture Capital / Private Equity funds, the Mahansaria Family Office also makes direct venture investments.
We are selective in our approach, with the aim of making meaningful, focused investments in a few promising ventures. While we are sector agnostic, we look for ventures that address a large, well-defined market opportunity, with a clear path to profitability and sustainable competitive advantages. Our investee companies also tend to be “post-revenue” with significant market validation.
We are typically not the first or lead investors in a venture and prefer investing alongside other credible investors. However, we are always glad to engage with start-ups of all stripes & stages and to connect entrepreneurs with potential investors or partners in the start-up ecosystem whenever possible.
As first-generation entrepreneurs themselves, our principals offer a wealth of entrepreneurial experience alongside capital. Knowing first-hand the ups and downs in any entrepreneurial journey, we are patient investors and are happy to stand by investee companies in their inevitable rough patches. We also strive for simple investment constructs that ensure operational flexibility & interest alignment for Founders along with basic investor safeguards.
