两家印度Fintech创企分获红杉资本百万美元投资

据印度《经济时报》报道,风险投资公司红杉资本近日分别领投了印度保险门户网站Turtlemint的600万美元融资,同时还对个人投资平台Smallcase注资700-800万美元。

Turtlemint由前Quikr高管Dhirendra Mahyavanshi和Anand Prabhudesai于2015年创立。它是一个在线保险集合商,拥有财务咨询平台,可根据算法和数据分析为客户提供建议。

Smallcase是一种主题投资平台,允许投资者投资基于主题的股票投资组合,例如GST Opportunity。这家位于班加罗尔的公司由三名IIT-Kharagpur毕业生--Vasanth Kamath、Anugrah Shrivastava和Rohan Gupta于2015年建立。

毕马威(印度) -  NASSCOM的一份联合报告显示,预计到2020年,红杉资本对印度金融科技投资将超过24亿美元。

此前,红杉资本曾先后对BankBazaar、Capital Float和MobiKwik等印度贷款和支付进行过投资。最近,红杉资本又投资了信用卡积分返利平台Cred和在线金融平台Drip Capital。

红杉资本最近宣布了一系列新的风险投资和增长投资基金,专注于美国、中国和印度市场,因为它希望与主权财富基金和日本融资集团SoftBank的1000亿美元远景基金形成竞争。

到目前为止,红杉资本已在印度和东南亚进行了200多项投资。其中一些着名的印度投资包括Byju's、Zomato、Freshworks、OYO Rooms、Practo和Just Dial。

Venture capital firm Sequoia Capital has led a $6-million round in insurance portal Turtlemint, and is investing another $7-8 million in personal investment platform Smallcase, The Economic Times reported.

The deals mark the latest investment bets by Sequoia in the country’s fintech space, which is predicted to cross $2.4 billion by 2020, according to a KPMG India-NASSCOM report. Sequoia had earlier backed lending and payments firms such as BankBazaar, Capital Float and MobiKwik. Most recently, the firm invested in Cred, founded by FreeCharge founder Kunal Shah, which offers rewards to credit card users on bill payments, and online finance platform Drip Capital.

Backed by brokerage platform Zerodha, Smallcase is a kind of thematic investing platform, which allows an investor to invest in a portfolio of stocks based on a theme, such as GST Opportunity. The Bengaluru-based company was established by three IIT-Kharagpur graduates –  Vasanth Kamath, Anugrah Shrivastava, and Rohan Gupta in 2015.

Turtlemint, on the other hand, was founded by former Quikr executives Dhirendra Mahyavanshi and Anand Prabhudesai in 2015. It is an online insurance aggregator with a financial advisory platform to offer clients advice based on algorithm and data analytics.

Sequoia Capital had recently announced a swathe of new venture capital and growth investment funds focused on the US, China and India as it seeks to compete with sovereign wealth funds and Japanese funding conglomerate SoftBank, which had raised a $100 billion Vision Fund.

So far, Sequoia has made over 200 investments in India and Southeast Asia. Some of its notable Indian investments include Byju’s, Zomato, Freshworks, OYO Rooms, Practo, and Just Dial.
