What We Do

Palaash is young, energetic and sector agnostic. We work closely with a new breed of entrepreneurs to
foster and promote existing businesses, start-ups or cutting edge ideas with the potential to uniquely solve commonplace,
simple problems that can make a difference in the lives of others.

As an entrepreneur you are growing a tree.
We are here to help you achieve the untapped potential of your ideas. We assist you, nurture your idea and
care for your vision, enabling your sapling to blossom into a Palaash tree that can weather any storm. We're not just
looking for ambitious ideas and big returns. Our focus at Palaash is to leverage our business leadership and operating
expertise to add value to your company's performance and growth.
We don't just want to do this as your investors but we strive to do it as your colleagues and friends.

A critical requisite for a company seeking to work with us is that they should be able to work closely and
vigorously together with us: creating an equal, synergistic partnership where all the stakeholders benefit, rather than a
top-down funding programme where only the investors do.


Our Partnership Criteria

We invest ourselves in the big ideas of small start-ups.
Our selection process for partnership focuses on a few important requirements:

Team get its hand dirty

The idea is backed by a robust execution team with relevant expertise. A team that is willing to get into the trenches and work till they fulfill their vision.

Open to close and vigorous partnership

We invest more than just money into your business. We invest our time, efforts and expertise to ensure that your company scales new heights. However, to materialize this, it is important that you have the same belief.

Singular idea

The solution offered has an innovative and disruptive value proposition. The solution is unique and has the potential to truly differentiate itself from its competitors.

Potential to do good business

The company has the acumen to turn an idea into a full-fledged business and the ability to earn a decent amount of profit from it. The company should also address a large market size and should have the potential to capture a substantial share of it.
