Every struggle, pressure, challenge-
is an opportunity for us to rise
- Kobe Bryant
Every crisis brings a new outlook and a new opportunity. With the same thought in mind we step into the New Year. We at HA hope to discover new and capable startups that will add to the potential of our already robust portfolio.
HA’s commitment to bring value beyond capital further strengthens with the advent of new partnerships and increased collaboration with other similar networks.
We have worked heavily on building our Investment relationships with our startups and improving internal communication with our members with the help of our internal software. We have also changed & streamlined our methodology of evaluating companies to better our pipeline. In the last quarter our focus area has been Agritech, Consumer and Deep tech enterprises which has appealed to our members. Our aim is to target companies with a long term investment in mind.
At the other end of the spectrum we are also striving to become a good funnel for other VCs and become a trusted source in the VC community.
We wish all a Happy Republic Day 2021
