About Us

seperator

Turning Ideas Venture Partners (TVP) is a sector agnostic angel network, investing in businesses built on vibrant and new ideas enabled by path-breaking use of technology. We see an opportunity for wealth creation in India created by entrepreneurial activity and rising growth aspirations. To leverage this we seek to invest in the newly connected economy represented by mobile, internet, data analytics, software and cloud.

TVP intensively works in perfectly blending all the vital components that builds a dynamic new-age entrepreneurial ecosystem. We prepare, evaluate, encourage and hand-hold innovative young entrepreneurs, however all these efforts may go in vain unless they are given access to modern means of equity funding & mentoring opportunities.

Besides providing capital, TVP members act as mentors for the greenhorns venturing into the world of business. The big advantage of being a TVP investee is that, apart from very high quality mentoring, investors are able to handhold the entrepreneur through the life cycle of fundraising as well and open doors to customers and partners of very high order.

  • As a sector agnostic angel fund we have the ability to accelerate venture growth through access to our global network of focused investors, mentors, service providers, strategic partners and thought leaders
  • We help shape strategy and drive business development through our core team's extensive experience in building global enterprises at Local level
  • We use our extensive network to access top, global talent to round out teams for each stage of growth
  • As disciplined investors, we ensure that our companies function within a well-defined framework of financial planning and internal controls

Fund a Venture

Our Investment Advisory service is uniquely placed to assist Institutions, HNIs, Ultra HNIs and Family Businesses to benefit from the dynamism of the Indian equity markets by steering their investments in technology enabled ventures incubated & curated by Turning Ideas Team.

Financial Advisory

Different businesses have different funding needs at different point in time. We understand the peculiar needs of various businesses by working closely with entrepreneurs in achieving their growth plans thereby arranging funds from Venture Capital Firms (VC) or Seed Funds and structure a funding solution accordingly. We also provide end-to-end M&A advisory. We take a hands-on approach and provide talented, driven entrepreneurs with on-the-ground management strategy and execution. We bring vast experience in entrepreneurship, investing and strategic management, along with deep industry knowledge and relationships. Compared to other early stage investors, we invest in fewer companies and hence are able to focus a lot more on the development and healthy growth of our portfolio companies.

Competency Development

We help the investors develop capabilities to perform investment related due diligence of technology enabled ventures. It is targeted at non-tech investors, who want to gather the tools for evaluating a startup and make an informed investment decision. It also includes training on the complete equity linked investment process along with necessary legal & financial support. Once certified, these investors can get onboard TVP as Promoters
