Private Capital
This is how Indian UHNIs will drive investments in domestic tech startups
17 Nov 2021
Family offices, which were once the domain of a select few, are becoming more commonplace these days. We are seeing an increase in the number of wealthy people around the world, with age-old concerns about wealth preservation, corporate governance, and succession planning persisting.
Some of India's wealthiest families are likely to be behind the influx of capital that the country's burgeoning startup ecosystem will receive in the coming years. Indian startups are expected to raise around $100 billion in funding by 2025.
According to a report, titled 'Turning Ideas to Gold,' by Networks and Praxis Global Alliance, high-net-worth individuals are expected to invest $30 billion in Indian tech startups by 2025. By then India could add 95 new tech unicorns to its 56-strong unicorn pool.
Ultra high net worth individuals in India those with a net worth of more than $30 million are increasingly establishing family offices to preserve and manage their wealth. In the last five years, family offices have increased their investments in startups. However, it is still in its early stages, with most such family offices preferring to keep the majority of their money in traditional asset classes such as stocks, real estate, and gold.
