IvyCamp Event


A fund focused on emerging and disruptive businesses across the globe.

In 2015, we launched our IvyCamp Platform to help high potential early stage companies to grow, scale and engage with customers. The platform has built a network of over 5000 Alumni as mentors, investors, corporates, accelerators, entrepreneurs to work with these startups. As a next natural step, we have launched this Angel Fund as part of the Platform to invest in some of these select startups.

The Angel fund intends to strengthen the start-up ecosystem by providing access to early stage financing, a high quality mentor network and access to global markets. The aim of the fund is to participate in the cycle of value creation early on and nurture innovative businesses that are addressing large product market gaps and are founded by strong and experienced teams.

The IIT Alumni network spread across the world, the IvyCamp platform, and engagements with the leading educational institutes in India and abroad ensures a high quality deal flow which receives focused mentoring by our team of advisors the world over and strategic value addition from our existing portfolio companies.
