why seed investing

Nipun, being a founder, always wanted to understand the VC perspective & their way of assessing founders, markets & products.

After talking to the partners, VH seemed like the right fit to Nipun. Also, the opportunity to use AI to productise/automate the different aspects of a VCs job seemed like the right intersection between investing & product.


Quentin Tarantino, Eminem & Steve Jobs for how remarkably unique they are. The fact that they became successful on their own terms is pretty amazing to me.
