Behind every great investor, is a story.
This is the story of SVB India Capital Partners.
Once upon a time (1983, to be precise) a firm was founded. It was called Silicon Valley Bank.
SVB began serving the technology and life science markets, at a time when they were not well-understood by the financial services industry. And when many of today's leading players in these industries, were just getting started.
It was a time of high adventure. A time of great discoveries.
As Silicon Valley grew to be the world's center for technological innovation, SVB was there to foster its growth.
And helped thousands of companies succeed along the way.
With more than 1,000 employees and nearly $6 billion in assets, SVB (Nasdaq: SIVB) provides diversified financial services to more than 11,000 emerging, growth and established companies, in the technology, life science, private equity and premium wine markets around the world.
Twenty years after its creation, SVB re-created history when it brought the spirit of Silicon Valley to Bangalore.
Adventure and discovery began again.
Like any great protagonist, SVB wanted to share its know-how with people in places far, far away.
By first, by leading a group of foremost venture capital investors to Bangalore, and then opening its own operation and expanding its services, SVB kicked-started the creation of a Silicon Valley-like environment in India.
Thus was SVB India Capital Partners born.
These are a bunch of people who are living proof, that investing is as much about knowledge and relationships, as it is about money.
SVB India Capital Partners closed a $54 million equity fund focused on India and has a large kingdom of supporters and several sister businesses to help fight the good fight for entrepreneurs, spanning all sectors and stages of a company's growth.
All of which, in fairytale language, means they go around creating a lot of happy endings, for a whole lot of people.
