Welcoming Capital A as a Gold Sponsor at CLIMAFIX Summit 2023, India’s largest climate startup summit
Organized along with Energy Consortium – IIT Madras, Sep 22 & 23, at IITM Research Park.
250+ climate startups, 100+ investors, 25+ incubators & accelerators, 75+ innovators & researchers. All under one roof. For two days.
Happy to announce that Capital-A (Manjushree Capital Advisors) is a Gold sponsor for CLIMAFIX Summit 2023.
Capital A likes to be consider itself a startup for startups. A venture fund for seed to early stage meaningful startups, they invest across multiple sectors, but with a big emphasis on climate tech.
I have known the key folks behind Capital A for about a year now, and it appears that they are pushing the boundaries – and aiming for more sixes than fours.
As an example, they are holding an ambitious climathon later this week (Jul 5 &6) at Bengaluru where climate startups can pitch to win as much as a $1 million. Know more about this event – https://lnkd.in/g–uJUnJ
Besides access to capital, Capital A has one big advantage – its founder has been there, done that. Ankit Kedia is a former promoter of Manjushree Technopack Ltd., largest manufacturers of rigid plastics packaging in South Asia. Their web site says, “If you’ve ever held a bottle of Coke in your hand, it’s Manjushree who made it.”
I have not had the privilege of ever holding a bottle of coke in my hand, but I can kind of visualize what they mean. And also what a successful business background such as that could mean for startups – not just money, but also wisdom, the latter being a rather rare commodity in the hurried world of financial investing today.
