Investment firm Sense AI has launched a  $25 million (about Rs 200 crore) fund which will primarily invest in Indian artificial intelligence start-ups over the next three-and-a-half years, the company said on Tuesday. 

SenseAI Fund I plans to invest in 18-20 AI-first start-ups, focusing on early-stage companies, and may further make follow-on investments in its most promising portfolio companies, the company said. 

"We (will) fully invest the fund over the first 3.5 years and exit by the end of 8 years," SenseAI Ventures, co-founder, Rahul Agarwalla said. 

He said that the fund is primarily focused on Indians but it may do a few foreign domiciled startups with Indian founders. 

"Our approach is beyond capital. As experienced founders and operators we offer bespoke support tailored to the unique needs of each AI-first start-up. AI is the single largest value-creation opportunity of our lifetimes. In this new era of AI, SenseAI is not just a participant, but a catalyst for groundbreaking change," Agarwalla said. 

The firm claims to have successfully achieved four exits and maintains a portfolio of 12 high-potential startups in areas such as AI software-as-a-service, AI B2C, and AI Tools.
