Mr. Ankur Shrivastava, Founder & Managing Partner, Momentum Capital

Ankur, who co-founded Globevestor in 2013, has invested in over 40 startups including Agnikul, Springboard, Zoomcar, Devtron, Good Health Company, Flintobox and many more success stories. His past investments are spread across several industries, including SaaS, climate, health, and EdTech. His prior portfolio startups have raised over $500 million in funding from Sequoia, Accel, Y Combinator, Khosla Ventures, Menlo Ventures, Insight Partners, Foundation Capital, etc. and are collectively valued at over $1.5 billion now.

“At Globevestor, we successfully pioneered a focused cross-border, hybrid-VC approach to investing across the US-India corridor to support Indian startup founders. Momentum Capital is an organic jump in the journey to deeply leverage our global network & cross-border presence for the benefit of Indian startup founders,” Ankur Shrivastava (Founder & Managing Partner, Momentum Capital) shared.

Momentum Capital has a cross-border team & deep network in Canada, India & the US, and it actively helps founders scale across the globe. Its strong and impressive advisory and partner network includes Bill Draper (Founder, Sutter Hill Ventures), Adam Draper (Founder, Boost VC), Adeo Ressi (Chairman, Founder Institute), Mike Suprovici (Head of Acceleration, VC Lab), Abhilash Singh (Founding Partner, Auctus Advisors), and several global CXOs from leading VC/PE firms, tech giants, blitzscaling startups and top consulting firms.

“We’ve consciously chosen a strong set of advisors, investors, and venture partners across continents and verticals, to supercharge access to global capital and knowledge for Indian founders at the seed stage itself. I’ve shifted base to North America recently to double down on this further,” Ankur added.

The firm has finalized a couple of stealth investments already, and while being largely sector-agnostic, it will have affinity for technology startups in climate, health and SaaS as key themes.

India has seen a few globally competitive startups being built at home already in recent years, but the firm believes that the next decade will belong to a drove of global tech leaders born in India.
