How 100X.VC creates ‘social proof’ for seed-stage startups and drives deal flow for larger funds

Jun 20, 2021

In the middle of 2019, Sanjay Mehta, an angel investor with 130+ startups in his personal portfolio, launched 100X.VC to fund “100 interesting ideas”, and curate a pipeline of “fundable companies” for larger VCs.

It unveiled its first cohort of 20 startups later that year at a gala event in IIT Bombay.

Eighteen months later, in May 2021, the Mumbai-headquartered fund crossed the 50-startup milestone, with its last 21 investments coming inside two quarters. Did India need yet another early-stage VC?
