Press: Keiretsu Forum Angels Come to India

The Hindu BusinessLine

Angel investors – wealthy individuals who invest in and mentor start-ups – will be better off writing small cheques for a number of ventures rather than restricting their investment to just a few companies, according to Matthew Le Merle, Managing Partner, Keiretsu Capital.

He told The Hindu BusinessLine here that angel investing is a hit-driven business and the more diversified portfolio that an angel investor holds, the better are his or her chances of making a decent return.

Keiretsu Capital is a co-investment fund that has been started by Keiretsu Forum, the US-headquartered global angel network. Members of Keiretsu Forum can invest in these funds. Keiretsu Forum has 46 chapters across the world, including two in India – in Chennai and Bengaluru.
