It is towards business owners/successful entrepreneurs. It includes about 2nd/3rd generation of entrepreneurs with people who understand the high-risk and hide it in theory in startups. People who have the capacity to invest at least a minimum of 5 to 10% of their investment portfolio into startups

Area of Operations

Penetration into Market
