Amidst a cautious investment climate, IPV has stood out as a beacon of support for startups. The LetsGrow program, a cornerstone of IPV's post-investment assistance, played a pivotal role in fostering partnerships, providing invaluable resources, and ensuring successful outcomes for both founders and investors.

Despite the challenging landscape for startups globally, IPV's portfolio has remained robust. IPV's focus on investing in great founders at reasonable valuations has resulted in a high success rate, with only 10 out of 200 startups failing to return capital to investors.

Ankur Mittal, Co-Founder, IPV, said, “At IPV, we have always believed in investing in great founders at reasonable valuations. This eventually results in successful exits for our investors. We are a big believer of helping our founders scale up by leveraging our rich network to help companies not only get timely capital infusion but also rich mentoring to grow their businesses.”
