Mantra Capital is a $90 million cross-border venture capital fund with a primary geographical focus in the United States (US) and India where we invest in technology companies with significant growth potential across both markets.
Mantra, in the ancient Indian language Sanskrit, is a sound which is the key to all knowledge across the universe. At its essence, it is a sound which one does not utter, yet strives to become. Mantra Capital believes the core of our ethos is continuous learning – striving to be better every day.
Mantra’s investment focus is driven by our team’s experience in embracing the full investment continuum from startup to fully scaled company, resulting in significant appreciation and value-driven exits.
A zero-failure strategy is the driver for Mantra’s investment thesis. At its core, zero-failure, or “zero zeros” requires that we do not abandon, at the first sign of distress, potentially faltering companies in favor of winning companies. On the contrary, we apply a combination of capital, operational prowess, and transaction know-how to successfully pivot or restructure the business and generate value from the promising assets
