1. What is Launch Capital's Purpose?

Launch Capital serves as a platform where private investors, known as Angels, come together to provide capital to startup ventures in exchange for ownership stakes in these enterprises.

2. How Does Launch Capital Invest in Startups?

Launch Capital invests in startup enterprises through subscriptions to their equity share capital. Investment instruments may include equity or other convertible instruments permitted by SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India). Launch Capital conducts these investments through a Category-1 Fund registered with SEBI.

3. Who Can Become an Angel Investor with Launch Capital?

To become an Angel Investor with Launch Capital, you must meet the criteria outlined by SEBI, which includes:

  • Committing a minimum investment of Rs. 25 lakhs over a 5-year period.
  • Having a minimum net worth of Rs. 2 crores (excluding the value of your primary residence) for individuals (Rs. 10 crores for LLPs/Companies).
  • Demonstrating prior experience in startup investments or entrepreneurship.
  • Possessing a professional background with at least 10 years of experience.

4. What Are the Risks of Investing in Startups?

Investing in startups is considered high-risk due to their early-stage nature. These ventures face inherent risks, as their novel business models may or may not succeed. They may encounter challenges securing follow-on funding, face regulatory issues, or be affected by unforeseen internal or external factors. It's crucial to understand that Angel investments lack liquidity, making exits challenging. Investors should allocate funds they are willing to accept the loss of.

5. How Can I Mitigate the Risks of Such Investments?

To mitigate risks, diversify your portfolio by investing in multiple startups. While Launch Capital exercises caution in investment decisions, investing in startups remains high-risk. Only commit capital you can afford to lose.

6. What Is the Investment Timeframe?

Angel investments are typically long-term, with a maturity or exit period of 3 to 5 years or longer. Patience is essential in this investment venture.
