A few days back Sera and I launched Bharat Founders Fund (BFF). An initiative through which we bring together 50+ top operators and founders to invest in early stage companies.
The launch received immense love and attention - well not only over media and all of that, but the love and support that poured in was so overwhelming! So a big thank you to all of you! We honestly couldn't have done it with you folks!
Also, look Ma, we're famous ๐Ÿ‘‡

BFF is not just about the money, it's a lot more. So, along with our Venture Partners, we have created multiple resources that can help founders get insights into the know-how of building a company in India
This week, we launch the first chapter of our first playbook book "Building Meesho"
In the first episode of our playbook series, where we glean insights for entrepreneurial success from leaders in diverse domains, we have a freewheeling chat with Vidit Aatrey, co-founder and CEO of Meesho
A latent activity has emerged in the social commerce sphere which is also enabling existing micro-influencers to become entrepreneurs by monetising their reach on social platforms. We have found an extensive level of peer-to-peer e-commerce being executed through Instagram in what is currently a high-friction experience. (lack of transactional ability etc.)
We carried out a Roundtable discussion with Sharat Khurana, the co-founder and CEO of Zen Equity where we got into everything about ESOPs. So if you're thinking about setting up an ESOP Pool and want to know the nuances, you must watch this!
