Arkam Ventures

Arkam Ventures (previously Unitary Helion) is an early-stage technology fund partnering with outstanding founders with innovative ideas aimed at Middle India - the 400 million people just below the top of the pyramid. Call them theNext 400M. The biggest start-up outcomes of the next decade will come from innovating for this market. The smartest technology entrepreneurs we know are attracted to the challenges in these mega markets and the opportunity to build industry redefining businesses that enhance affordability, access, and quality of service.

The COVID crisis, while very challenging in the short-term, has accelerated digitization momentum in our core sectors - financial services, healthcare, food/agri, education/jobs and mobility. It has forced permanent consumer and behavioral changes that favor technology-centric solutions and create strong tailwinds for disruptive and resilient founders. They are likely to be the winners of tomorrow.

Adventures of an Indian Venture Capitalist

India's start-up revolution began in 1998, when the first venture capitalists (VCs) arrived from the US and backed early businesses in IT services for global corporates. The second wave came in 2006 when home-grown VCs raised large amounts of capital and funded products and services companies for Indian consumers.
