Raison D’être

Blume is in the ‘business of financing change’. We like to work with founders who are pathologically obsessed about solving a particular problem – as a 26-year old once quoted – “ideas are passé, one simply needs to invest in great people – the rewards will come”. Our role is to take risks on the business model well before anyone thinks it’s “hot”. We believe money alone is, and will continue to be, undifferentiated; the investment team and the ecosystem provided by Blume are our raison d’être for the entrepreneur, and his/her eventual choice of partnering with Blume.

Culture is never standardized and one of the hardest things to accomplish in the early years. We are certain capital is a necessary but insufficient ingredient in this journey – we are not simply “investors” but the founding team’s “partners” – from the very first meeting to an eventual exit – whatever that exit outcome maybe. Our founders value our transparency, maturity and approachability. Reimagining start up financing in India, we’re entrepreneurs at heart, building an institution, helping evolve the early-stage ecosystem – we’re in for the long haul and see our journey as far out as 2035.
