Get To Know Us Better

  • Do you fund a business at the ideation stage?
    Yes, we help start-ups at any stage. We get involved with all stages of developing a business, whether it's ideation, development, or growth.

  • Is location a requisite for funding?
    No, our investors don’t have to be located where the business is. ​

  • Can you help with making my pitch deck?
    No, we don't make an entire pitch deck from scratch. We do, however, help start-ups modify it to suit the investor's expectations. You can also present mock presentations to our team for feedback before making the final pitch to the investor.

  • Do you charge commission on the funding?
    We charge a four % conversion fee as soon as funds from the investor flow into your account. Any fees paid for services preceding this stage are adjusted against this sum.​

  • What kind of investors do you have?
    Our investors are a mix of high net-worth individuals, VCs, family offices, banks, other successful start-ups, successful entrepreneurs, large-scale companies, and so on. We also have our own private fund which mainly focuses on agro-tech and defense-oriented start-ups. ​

  • I am not confident in giving a presentation in English. Will that be a problem?
    No, that would not be a problem at all. Our investors focus on the idea and path you are on rather than your choice of language. Having said that, if there's a language barrier between you and the investor, we arrange for a translator who can assist you during meetings and for other communication.

  • My start-up is registered in another country, can I still get funded?
    Yes, as long as everything is legal, there shouldn't be any problem.​

  • Can you help/ guide me on how to give presentations to investors?
    Yes, we have experienced team members from universities like IIM and HARVARD who assist start-ups with presentations.​

  • Can you help with the valuation of my start-up?
    Yes, we can. Our finance professionals will also guide you on how to structure your deal with the investor.

  • What are the fees for the whole service? 
    A start-up does not have to pay anything at
     the time of registration. After you submit your details through a form on our website, our expert representative will connect with you to take things forward. It could take anywhere between 10 and 30 working days to set up a meeting with investors who are interested in your company and would like to invest. Once we’re able to connect you to a serious investor, you’ll be charged a nominal fee of INR 6,000.​

  • Why should I pay you a fee of INR 6000 before the meeting with an investor?
    Our investors take us as seriously as we take them. This makes it mandatory for us to claim a nominal fee of INR 6000 to ensure seriousness on the part of the start-up that has applied to be connected to a relevant investor in India.​

  • After a meeting, if I don’t get an investment, can I claim a refund of the initial fee?
    We’re afraid not. This is because investors who agree to meet start-up parties are 80% sold on the idea. Statistically speaking less than 5% of all entries get a meeting with an investor; of this number 82% of all meetings materialize into an offer of investment.​

  • How do I get in touch with Turiya Investments? 
    The best way to get in touch is to fill out the form on our webpage, and a representative from Turiya will get in touch with you shortly.​

  • Up to how much funding can be arranged for a start-up?
    Our seed capital investors and start-up investors can invest anywhere between INR 1,00,000 to INR 1,00,00,00,000, through our strong network. Each investor has a different capacity, so we only connect you with an investor or a group of investors with the appropriate capacity for your start-up needs in the present time, as well as the future. ​

  • What are your other services? 
    We help start-ups by providing end-to-end services like Incubation, Pitch Improvement, Legal Guidance, Company Setup, Paperwork, CA, and CS work, to name a few. Once we see the potential in your idea, we will happily pull out all the stops to ensure your success. 

Startup Stages

  • There are different stages of a startup. The following 3 are the most common; A. Ideation and business formation, B. Proof of concept, C. Scaling the business. Each investor has a different investment philosophy and therefore generally invests in a specific sector or a stage of a startup. We have a variety of investors to fulfil the needs of all stages of a startup.

  • A. Seed Capital; ideation and business formation
    This is the very first investment of money that is used to start a business, be it for research or development of the prototype of the product or simply the funding that will help you to focus on your project to take it up full time. This is also where you use your own capital, or take the help of F&F, that is family and friends.

  • B. Angel Funding; Proof of concept; Scaling the business
    Once you have raised as much as you can from the FFF (Friends, Family, and Fools) you should start looking for Angel Investors. No matter how generous your family and friends are, those finances are limited and the majority of the time, not even enough to help you reach your dreams. We call these investors ‘angel investors’ as these are those people who are wealthy and outside the initial group of your family and friends. Yet they are still ready to take a risk on your business as a loan or in exchange for some stocks in your business.

  • C. Venture Capital (Series A, Series B, Series C, etc.)
    Venture Capital or VC comes into the picture when you have already launched your business and have started with the distribution or sales. While the seed and investor money helps you launch, they are not bringing you anything in return as you are just spending at that stage and not earning anything in return. At this stage, you should approach a venture capital or VC for funding so as to grow your company and to finally move towards making a profit. Note that if the company is not making any profit at the time of approaching the VC, the capital they get is often used to offset the negative cash flow that they are facing. There are multiple rounds of Venture Capital financing with each round typically given a letter like A followed by B followed by C, etc. Startups that approach VC have at that point usually figured out what their product is, what is the size of the market and to what scale they need capital.
