SearchLight Ventures - an investment deal-sourcing firm headquartered in the US â€“ launched operations in India, headquartering in the New Delhi area. Several founding partners relocated there to head up the companyâ€™s expansion into the Indian market.
SearchLight Ventures is an online platform that connects small to mid-sized enterprises (SMEs) to private equity and venture capital players by creating in-house investment memos for select SMEs seeking institutional investment. They store these profiles in the SearchLight Database, where certified investors who subscribe to the Database can search the entries, parse the results, and reach out to SMEs of interest, initiating the financing process.
The mission of SearchLight Ventures is to replace the inefficient and often sparse physical network between investors and investees, reshaping the manner in which the two interact by streamlining the initial contact process. Founder and CEO, Aakash Kumar, stated â€śSearchLight Ventures aims to be a disruptive technology that will revolutionize deal sourcing by establishing a new paradigm for emerging economies.â€ť
SearchLight Ventureâ€™s focus on emerging markets stems from two factors: A lack of extensive networks on the part of foreign investors creates the need, while a less entrenched deal sourcing process creates the opportunity for SearchLight Venturesâ€™ core offering.
Indian entrepreneurs are beginning to seek institutional investment. This, paired with an increasingly large pool of investors marks the nation as poised to bridge the gap between the two parties. SearchLight Ventures plans to expand its operations to other strong and emerging markets like Brazil, China, and the US, as well as to global companies.
