In the ongoing funding winter, this private equity fund can help start-ups currently struggling to raise captial at proper valuation.

Till now, 8vdx has raised $10 million and is on a mission to raise another $90 million within the next 24  months. 

To expand its business, Chachra reached out to multiple Singapore-based start-ups and discussed the business model at the recently organised fintech festival in Singapore. The company is also set to place a number of funding experts in the Singapore office. The 15-member team in the Mumbai office will also be increased to 40 within the next year.
