Kettleborough VC, an India-based early-stage venture capital firm led by seed investor Nisarg Shah, has launched its first venture capital fund. The Fund has received $5 million in capital commitments from LPs that include business owners and startup founders. The Funds will invest in technology-focused startups founded by Serial Entrepreneurs and Domain Experts.
Nisarg Shah launched Kettleborough as a Solo GP Fund in late 2021, with the goal of investing in promising technology-driven ventures at their seed stages and co-creating them with their founders. Kettleborough has deployed capital in 5 companies so far through this maiden Fund, including Zippmat with Matrix and Zephyr Peacock, Zocket with Kalaari, and Bytelearn with Leo and Chiratae, and is closing two more transactions with Infoedge and Kae in the coming month.
Nisarg Shah, Founder and General Partner at Kettleborough said, “We build up independent conviction on founders and the space they want to operate in at ideation or even before that, bring along relevant partners and help the companies see it through. We have been working with this profile of founders for years now and understand very well on how to co-ideate and be complementary alongside them. Our value-additions range from insights on revenue models to getting upstream investors to enabling business partnerships for the companies.”
The Nisarg Shah-led AIF was purposefully designed to move quickly and does not adhere to standard IC or partner meeting procedures, resulting in faster capital deployment. Kettleborough’s investment strategy is based on high conviction and deep concentration. It plans to invest in 8-10 seed-stage companies over the next 12 months, with checks ranging from $150,000 to $300,000. It will also play a significant role in the follow-on rounds of its portfolio companies.
