Bharat Innovation Fund is an early-stage focussed fund, managed by CIIE Advisors Private Limited, aimed at producing breakthrough IP-driven innovations from India.

We believe India, that is Bharat, and its transformational entrepreneurs are producing globally competitive and disruptive solutions for some of the toughest challenges. Their ventures can be game-changers not only in the Indian context - but emerge as dominant leaders globally. Through our early-stage capital, unparalleled networks, strategic insights and operational hand-holding, we can significantly de-risk the process of conversion of these ideas into companies of consequence.
