New Delhi, Nov 11 (ANI/Business Wire India): Mauryan Capital Advisors ("Mauryan"), the recently launched New Delhi based private investment firm has announced its intention to make growth capital private equity investments in small companies.
Mauryan will target investment sizes of Rs 5cr to Rs 25cr per company. Mauryan will typically invest in emerging companies that have validated their business models, generated revenues of at least Rs 5cr and have the potential to grow rapidly in a capital efficient way. Although sector agnostic, Mauryan has a preference for companies in sectors such as financial services, branded consumer products and services, business services, and infrastructure enabling industries.
In Mauryan's view, small companies are often harbingers of new service offerings addressing the gaps in the market that others have overlooked. Capital-efficient, growth oriented small companies are a key driver for any economy.
They generate employment, are creative and typically flourish in under-serviced sectors. Unfortunately small companies have to face tremendous challenges during their early years. Entrepreneurs are resource constrained, forced to multi task as both product and business development people and find it difficult to access early stage equity growth capital from institutional sources.
Mauryan is looking to help grow select small companies by providing them with equity capital and other forms of business and operational assistance as required. Mauryan aims to provide a structured framework within which a small company may thrive and be able to focus on its core competence.
Mauryan was co-founded by Nitin Bhandari and Shiv Wallia. Nitin and Shiv have almost twenty years of work experience each at various blue chip institutions overseas. Nitin was formerly a Managing Director at Nomura, London, and Shiv was previously a Managing Director at Merrill Lynch, London. Nitin has financed, invested in, and provided strategy, capital raising and M and A advice to a number of companies in infrastructure, energy, real estate, healthcare, leisure and hospitality, and retail.
