We are disciplined, thesis-driven investors with a deep-lens on sectors we understand and ideas that have a wide margin to succeed

About Us

Founded in 2013 by Digital Natives who have been Founders themselves, Windrose Capital exists to support India’s Fast-transforming Economy through early and mid-stage investments in promising Start-ups.

We are active investors, thoughtful advisors, and dedicated problem-solvers with a passion for technology and a deep belief in the transformative power of Digital-first Businesses.

For Our Investors

We exist to create capital value by harnessing disruptive, efficiency-driven opportunities in the Indian Startup space.

The world, and Asia in particular, is on the cusp of an Information revolution. India is witnessing a tremendous opportunity to creating new value, as we can bypass the industrial economy to leap-frog into the Information Age.

Windrose helps you ride this wave. We exist to enable potential Indian Unicorns to arrive onto the global stage. Most importantly, we see that India will be a very different place, a decade from now, and we offer you the opportunity to co-create the economy of the future with us.

For Our Founders

In our experience of creating Startups we see that Founders rarely get an empathetic voice across the table and hence have to go through hula-hoops to answer concerns that are non-core to eventual outcomes and do not focus on value-creation as much as value-capture.

Windrose Capital allows you to focus on what you do best - go ahead and create value. We make the process of initial conversations through terms and legalities extremely simple and transparent, saving time and opportunity costs for you. We then back you through your start-up journey with our experience of creating and growing products (and services), markets and growth.

Along the way we also enable your company with crucial but non-core processes that help you avoid future trouble early. With us, capital commitments are the start to an iterative process of helping you succeed.
