They have focused investment in seed / rapid growth opportunities in wide spectrum of Information Technology areas such as Enterprise Applications, Testing, Infrastructure Software Solutions, Security, eGovernance, Outsourcing, Embedded & Mobility applications, etc

In many of the successful investments in the past, KITVEN Fund was a founding / first investor and made our investment when the company was no more than a passionate team. They have maintained a rigorous investment process and a commitment to work closely with our portfolio companies.

KITVEN Fund understands that promising companies need more than financial backing to succeed. On the road from seed to success we became the founding team’s trusted advisor. The Fund has invested in companies which have both economic and developmental impact in the State of Karnataka.
