For our new fund Fund II, we are looking for potential Series A & Series B deals. Our focus will be more on these stages of startups. We will do only exceptional late seeds & some early Series A deals.

Because our new fund is $150m we would like to look at companies whose product/ market fit is already found & are looking at accelerating the growth rates.

Hope to hear from folks at the above mentioned stages.



Hi All,

We @ Orios are looking to invest in a few more potential Series A Startups & hence we welcome the Entrepreneurs/ Startups to reach out to me/us.

Having already done a few Series A investments we are hungry for more potential good Series A investments.

Any Tech consumer & SaaS startups which have raised angel/ seed investments earlier & are looking to explore raising their Series A should get in touch with me/us.

Startups which are early in their early Series A journey should/ can get in touch too.

Look forward to hearing from you folks soon.



We @Orios Venture Partners have been meeting some very interesting/ promising startups since the last few months. Though some of them are at very early stages ( some just started ) we like the team, the opportunity they are going after, the potential market size, their quick learn-ability skills etc .,

We have taken some quick decisions to back a few of them & are excited about their prospects in the near/medium/long term progress.

We are bullish on the Tech B2C & SaaS Prod cos which are going after the global market.

We Welcome young startups to reach out & to have a chat with us.

Here’s Wishing you all a very Happy, Exciting & Prosperous New Year 2015.



I’m writing this post after a pretty long time. Wanted to update on my new role/ position.

I’m a key member of an early stage VC Fund. Its an exciting time both for me & as well as the fund as we are on a new journey together. We both share a long time view & there’s considerable synergy in our thought processes. You will soon hear more about the fund soon.

We intend to create potential home-runs while investing in our portfolio companies.

We are looking at Enterprise Software Prod companies which has the potential to go global & Consumer Internet companies which are Tech focused. Request any Startups in this space to please get in touch with me.

Will update on further developments.


Qualcomm Ventures, has kicked off its QPrize™ 2014 international seed investment competition. The goal of the contest is to identify and fund the industry’s next promising, early stage tech companies. The QPrize competition is open to entrepreneurs across China, Europe, India, Israel, Korea, Latin America and North America. One finalist from each region will be awarded US$100,000 in convertible note financing from Qualcomm as seed funding and will be invited to compete against other regional finalists in the QPrize Grand Finals competition. The Grand Finals winner will receive an additional US$150,000 of convertible note funding to help transform the company’s innovative business plan into reality.

“As a leading industry enabler, Qualcomm is committed to fueling innovation and driving cutting-edge technologies into the entire wireless ecosystem,” said Nagraj Kashyap, senior vice president of Qualcomm Ventures. “The QPrize competition allows us to take a look at very early stage companies in key regions throughout the world and fund the next wave of up and coming innovators. Last year’s entrants redefined the capabilities of mobile technology, which was showcased when the Grand Finals winner, iOnRoad, was acquired less than 30 days after the Grand Finals. QPrize acts as an important validation point for many of these startups, and we look forward to fostering the development and leveraging the QPrize brand to further raise awareness of these breakthrough technologies.”

The deadline to submit business plans is April 18, 2014. From the pool of competing entries, Qualcomm Ventures will select up to eight finalists from each of the seven regions. Finalists will attend a regional competition where each company will be evaluated by a panel of experts based on the merits of the technology innovation, its market potential, the company’s management capabilities and the attainability of the proposal’s financial projections.

The Qualcomm Ventures QPrize competition is now open. To get additional details, including background information on past winners, rules and regulations, submission guidelines, or to submit your business plan go

We ( Innovation Angels) are organizing the next pitch on Oct 10th, 2012, Wednesday. Similar to the earlier pitches this is a closed networking event and only about 6/7 startup teams would be selected for the session.

We have seen phenomenal responses to our earlier events. These events have helped a few interesting startups to get good advice/ suggestions which has helped them to a great extent.

In fact we have been getting requests to hold more of these events more frequently/ regularly.

The startups who will pitch in these events will get access to a great many Angels/ early stage VC’s who will be present for  evaluating them.

Every event of our’s has seen a bigger audience ( more investors looking for potential investments )

Hence all interested Entrepreneurs/ Startups/ Teams can please get in touch.
