We believe and work at curating companies and ensuring that only those opportunities which have been gleaned using our investment banking experience and are genuine, get listed on our site. We follow a detailed selection and validation process – to study business models, review business plans and capture the competitive advantage and ensuring it is scalable and sustainable. We also vet whether the business is truly differentiated by either addressing an unaddressed market gap, successfully going to market through an improved solution for prevalent gaps or creating a niche market”
