In an official statement, SphitiCap stated that its maiden fund will invest in cleantech, fintech, deeptech, agritech, proptech, software as a service (SaaS), digital media, direct to consumer, spacetech, defence, and logistics and supply chain start-ups. Pallav Kumar Singh, the company's managing partner said, “As a sector-agnostic India-centred firm, we focus on value rather than valuations.”
