Press: VCCircle Interviews Matthew Le Merle on Angel Investing in India

Best time for angel investors in India, says Keiretsu Cap's Matthew Le Merle 

Keiretsu Capital, the co-­investment fund of global angel network Keiretsu Forum, raised around $6.5 million for its first angel ­investor fund in 2015. It is now planning to start a seed fund in India. During his recent visit to India, Matthew Le Merle, a managing partner at the fund, said it was contemplating an India­ focussed fund in 2017.

The US ­based cross­ border network's Chennai chapter, its first in India, has invested a little over $1 million in early ­stage startups, finishing its first year with around a dozen deals.

In this interview with VCCircle, Le Merle, whose firm, Fifth Era, advises countries and companies on growing the digital economy, outlines the investment goals for Keiretsu Capital's funds and the opportunities for angel investors in India.
