We take the due diligence of the startups very seriously and hence we select only 2% of the startups who apply. It involves many steps like the team due diligence, market due diligence, legal and financial due diligence, tech due diligence and meeting the Founders
As a facilitator our aim is to provide you with the most promising startups backed by a passionate and competent founder and team, which have cleared their due diligence. However, startup investment is a high risk investment and many startups fail despite clearing all the checks. Hence, it is advisable to create an investment strategy and a startup portfolio to mitigate risk.

Given the highly volatile nature of startup investments, the entire amount of your investment will be at risk. The potential for a total loss of capital is high for many startup investments and you should refrain from investing unless you can bear the entire loss.
For many angel investors a startup’s founding team is to be one of the main ingredients that determine the performance of the company and hence their investments.
Since many startups have a high potential for disruption and venture into emerging industries, there may be some regulatory challenges involved in their sectors or possible issues on intellectual properties.

Investments in startups are speculative and these companies often fail. Unlike an investment in a mature business where there is a track record of revenue and income, the success of a startup often relies on the development of a new product or service that may or may not find a market. You should be able to afford and be prepared to lose your entire investment.
Your return depends on your investment amount, the company’s exit valuation (How much the company is worth at that time), and the terms of the subscription agreement. Investors invest money at an extremely early stage and hence their stake is affected by future events only. If an activation event does not happen, you may never get a return on your investment.
The various activation events can be
