On 12th November, 100X.VC revelled that the top companies of India always have around INR 10 to 100 Cr. of capital with them so they can invest in start-ups.

A partner at 100X.VC, Ninad Karpe said that:

“Indian corporations woke up after the Walmart acquisition of Flipkart. It shook all of them to start looking at startups seriously. Through this programme, we will be helping corporations discover, invest and build startups allied to their industry and strategic fitment. Initially, we will plan to work with 10-12 company boards to actively create a bespoke deal flow for their investments.”

Opportunities for Investors

With the introduction of this new programme, CVC partners also known as investors can now leverage the start-ups funded by 100X.VC as their deal flows to the next investment round. 100X.VC stated that they have built a platform for corporate who are looking for potential start-ups to boost their investment strategy.

This CVC programme also allows emerging start-ups to use the investing company’s prestigious brand, good networking connections, industry expertise and ecosystem of developed products. Investing in companies is always an opportunity to increase revenue for CVCs as they can enter new markets, acquisition targets, strike the right deals, harness new technology and access new resources.

With this, they also believe that this relation can lead to more profitable partnerships between CVC and its parent company which will increase the value of the start-ups. All this will drive the CVC ecosystem to expand like Google and Reliance in India.
