AngelList联合投资项目进军印度市场

大约18个月前,美国著名股权众筹平台AngelList聘请Utsav Somani帮助其在印度开展基本业务。而如今,AngelList决定将其代表性的“联合投资项目”(Syndicates)也带入印度市场。

“联合投资项目”于2013年在美国首次推出,主要是为了帮助经验丰富的早期投资者获得更多的潜在投资机会,同时让经验较少的投资者也能有机会从投资早期企业中获得合理的收益。总的来说,“联合投资项目”与迷你基金类似,但是它更希望帮助投资者获得更多平时难以企及的顶级交易机会。

据悉,目前“联合投资项目”已经先后登陆美国、加拿大、英国和印度市场。AngelList表示,自项目推出以来,共有1870多家参与了这个项目,累计融资7.05亿美元,并且在后续融资中再度斩获64亿美元。这其中就包括共享出行平台Uber和印度的ClearTax(该公司注册地在美国,并参与了Y Combinator的孵化项目)。

现在,AngelList希望通过“联合投资项目”来带动印度早期市场发展。

据悉,AngelList已经就此招募了至少六个“联合投资项目”的领投人,其中包括Saama Capital的Ash Lilani、FreeCharge创始人Kunal Shah和Citrus Pay创始人Satyen Kothari。想要投资该项目的印度居民必须满足某些资产要求,比如净资产至少2亿卢比,或净值10亿卢比。

满足要求的印度投资者可以同时投资在美国和其他市场的初创企业。

可以说,AngelList此刻在印度推出这个项目可谓恰逢其时。来自印度VCCircle旗下VCCEdge数据显示,2017年获得天使轮或种子轮融资的印度创企总数下降了一半,早期交易量从2016年的901笔下降到了2017年的435笔,投资者投资额也从3.74亿美元下降到了2.45亿美元。

AngelList has expanded its syndicates program to India in the latest overseas move for the US crowdfunding platform.

The launch comes some 18 months after we reported that AngelList had hired Utsav Somani to launch the service and develop its business generally in India, where it also offers its hiring product.

Syndicates was launched in the US in 2013 with the purpose of giving experienced early-stage investors more spending potential and allowing those with less experience to join them to put money into promising early-stage companies. Essentially they operate like mini funds, but they are focused on helping investors get into top deals that would otherwise be difficult to access.

Available in the US, Canada, the UK and now India, AngelList said Syndicates have raised $705 million from more than 1,870 startups. Those companies have gone on to raise $6.4 billion in subsequent follow-on funding, according to the company. Some of those startups include Uber, as well as India’s ClearTax — which is US-registered and took part in Y Combinator.

Now AngelList wants to upend India’s early stage market with Syndicates.

Already, it has recruited at least half a dozen syndicate leads, including Saama Capital’s Ash Lilani, FreeCharge founder Kunal Shah, and Citrus Pay founder Satyen Kothari. Syndicates are open to Indian residents who meet certain finance requirements outlined on its website, including net assets of at least 2 crore, or a net worth of 10 crore.

Those certified in India will be eligible to invest in US startups on AngelList, and those of other countries, so long as they qualify for the relevant domestic investor status. In the US that means a net worth of $1 million or more, or an income over $200,000 per year for at least two years.

The timing seems ideal in India with reports suggesting that the number of startups landing angel or seed rounds halved during 2017 due to investor caution. That’s according to data from VCCEdge, the data business of tech media firm VCCircle, which found the number of early stage deals dropped from 901 in 2016 to 435 in 2017. The total spent by investors fell from $374 million to $245 million over the same period.
