As entrepreneurs, we are always about here and now or maybe two days later, but Endiya’s investment team saw a little ahead and could caution & warn us at the right times to slow us down or push us to speedup.

However, one should not, under any circumstance, forward confidential or proprietary information to us.
Investment Process and How long does it take to get the cheque?
Having been entrepreneurs ourselves, we understand the gravity of swifter decision making so that the founders can focus on building business. While the duration of the investment process may vary, typically we try and have the final decision about investment within 4 to 6 weeks. At any time during the process, if we decide to pass the opportunity, we promptly communicate. Broadly, this is what our investment process entails :
  • Review materials/pitch deck received from the founders to assess preliminary fitment with our investment focus.
  • Initial meetings : The Investment lead from Endiya conducts an introductory call to learn more about the idea, team and the opportunity. Subsequently, the investment lead spends more time to build their thesis and rationale and based on the interest takes the proposal to the Endiya Partnership and team.
  • Endiya Team Meeting : In the next step, the founders are introduced to the Endiya Leadership team for a conversation. Basis the continued interest, we conduct our diligence calls.
  • IC Meeting : After the meeting with Endiya leadership, if all goes well, we present the investment proposal to our Investment Committee and revert with the final feedback.
Deal Terms
  • Our initial investment in a start-up ranges from $500k to $1.5 million, with some room for flexibility on both ends. Over the life of the company, we may end up investing between $3 million to $4 million.
  • With a focused investment approach, as opposed to “spray and play”, and additional capital reserved for the follow-on rounds, we are committed to helping founders propel growth.
  • We contribute money, time, network and resources to help you build. Given our focus and dedication, we like to have a meaningful ownership (between 15% - 20%).
  • Neither we do nor do we expect the entrepreneurs to over optimise.
