If you have got a bunch of enthralling ideas that can change the world, I'd recommend reaching out to Better because there's nothing better than Better!

I got to know Vaibhav when we were raising our seed round at Toddle. Over the last 4 years, he has become a mentor in every sense of the word. He is the first person I go to know whenever I have any kind of question in my mind; his approachability and humility is unparalleled. He's always there when you need him, ready to listen and offer thoughtful advice.
It's rare to find someone who is so genuinely interested in building deep relationships with founders. He has played a big role in shaping my long-term thinking and has continually reminded me of the importance of doing things the right way. His guidance has not only helped shape Toddle's journey but also my personal evolution as a leader.

Better Capital has played a pivotal role in shaping OPEN's journey at the seed round, when we were still working on the idea and trying to get banking partnerships in place. In Vaibhav, we found this one person who bets on founders and their journeys and not just their ideas - one thing that has helped us at various junctures of our journey. And while the term 'mentor' gets thrown around a lot these days, Vaibhav's entrepreneurial journey makes him a great mentor to lean on.

I have no idea how Vaibhav does it. He is one of the most responsive and helpful investors we are lucky to work with. From day one he's been incredibly founder friendly and has constantly strived to support us with anything we can think of. The sheer volume of founders he's worked with means he's seen most problems before and what is insane he still finds the time to sit with you on a specific question whenever you need him.
We are lucky to work him and any prospective founders would be too!
Co-founder of Even
It's incredibly rare to find a VC who is not just a good investor, but also a real builder & a good human. Vaibhav has been a great partner, offering us comfort during turbulence & being a really powerful catalyst during prosperity.
In my two years of working with Vaibhav, I have got his right counsel on all critical parts of our startup. Specifically when our product direction evolved, when we did our follow-on fundraise, when sometimes we needed help on matters such as hiring/firing, among other instances that literally cover every aspect of our journey.
While we were just starting up — I already felt super grateful when we got our term-sheet from Better. Given 6 out of 6 founders who we had done reference checks from, told that Vaibhav & Better Capital are among the best folks to partner with. 2 years in, I feel this is even more true. We got even more lucky than we imagined ourselves to be. And I am sure the 200+ founders in Better family would all be sharing the same sentiment. That's a testament to the hard work & values that Better Capital stands for.

With Better Capital, it feels like you are directing a superhit film. Vaibhav, the producer, brings a blend of creative vision and strategic acumen to the table. He spotted potential in our vision, the script of our story. In our journey, he's been one of the guiding force, helping us navigate through the twists and turns of our plot.
Just as a producer empowers a film, Vaibhav has added great value to ours, ensuring STAGE's story is not only told but also celebrated. Vaibhav is the ally who converts vision into cinematic accomplishments.
Co-founder of STAGE
I have had the pleasure of working with Vaibhav since the early days of ShopKirana, and I am thoroughly impressed with his level of expertise and dedication. His strong connections and extensive network within the tech, startup and VC community has given him a unique advantage in identifying and investing in the most promising startups.
Vaibhav's understanding of the founder's mindset is unparalleled, and he has a knack for providing the right support and guidance at the right time. It's no surprise that he is known as the Jerry Maguire of the VC world. If you're a startup looking for a VC partner that truly cares about your success, I highly recommend Better Capital.
Co-founder of ShopKirana
In our early days, we were extremely careful about who we would work with. After meeting Vaibhav, there was tremendous satisfaction — we found someone beyond our expectations. He is the founder’s VC who radiates positivity and instantly gives a sense of approachability.
Once Vaibhav is in, he doesn’t just bring the knowledge, connections and strategic thinking, but he genuinely pours his heart out for the success of your startup. Sometimes, he is more vocal in celebrating your wins than you might be and is always there to support and steady the ship through turbulent times.
I highly recommend working with Vaibhav and Better Capital.
Co-founder & CEO of NxtWave
Vaibhav is a one Man Army - he is terrific resource for not only founders but also to larger community through all the information nuggets he keeps sharing on his social handles. At Probo, he has been a partner since day one and right till today (3 years and counting) he takes active participation in brainstorming ideas. He is well thought through and a big value add for founders.
Co-founder of Probo
Very rarely do you come across an investor who, at the core, wants to help both you and the company do better. Vaibhav is one of them. He has been with us since day 0 even before we knew what we were doing. We have gone through many pivots over the last 6 years, and Vaibhav has always been there to help, support, partner, and mentor us through this journey. I am glad that we got Vaibhav onboard with us from the get-go!"
Co-Founder & CEO of Mudrex
Vaibhav is a true builder and one who epitomizes "founder friendliness". He got involved with Nektar.ai at the idea stage and has shared invaluable inputs towards product development during our foundational phase. He has always pushed me on broadening my horizon and vision for Nektar and has always been available on a minute's notice to help with anything under the sun needed in startup building.
His feedback has always been precise and insightful and goes beyond ordinary. I have always found tremendous value during our conversations.
Along with being an early investor, he has been a great guide through a Product market fit journey and we were fortunate to partner with Better Capital.
Co-Founder & CEO of Nektar
Getting Better on board was the landmark moment in the journey of Filo, not because Filo got pre-seed funding but as founders, me & Shadman got Vaibhav to brainstorm with us together over WHAT, WHEN & HOW of Filo for weeks.
If you are an early stage founder with strong conviction over your product/idea - unconventional, not experimented or proven yet, which normally VCs find difficult to bet on, there is a chance Vaibhav may give you a shot.
He has an eye for disruptive solutions which comes from his diverse & deep understanding of the startup ecosystem. You will be asked the right sets of questions, not the typical rhetorics but the ones which will actually ensure your business is moving on the right track and at a higher pace.
Once Vaibhav backs you, he does it with full force, shares your vision, becomes part of your team, complements your strength, values your perspectives and time, pushes you to think & innovate, understands your problems, utilises his network to connect you to the best of the people on the planet... there is actually a long list :)
Co-founder of Filo
Better was introduced to me by one of my trusted friends a few months ago, we later discovered so many common connections.
Better is one of the few seed stage investors in India who can see the big picture and able to ask the right question to judge the potential of the team. Better helped me with my seed stage funding where they exceeded the funding goal by 140% in a matter for 5 days.
If you have a crazy dream, determination to chase it and can build the right team to execute, I strongly recommend talking to Better.
Co-founder of yulu
We're incredibly fortunate to have Better Capital as our early-stage investor. Their faith in our vision and unwavering support have been instrumental in our success.
And thanks to Vaibhav's extensive knowledge of the business development landscape, we've been able to establish strategic partnerships in the Maharashtra region, which will be a game-changer for us. He's been much more than a financial backer to us at Eeki®; he's become a trusted mentor. We're incredibly grateful for his support, and we wouldn't be where we are today without him!

Build build build- this really got unlocked for us through the early conviction from Better Capital. Better's investment is hands down the most value adding first cheque a founder can hope for.
We have partnered with Better and Vaibhav from our founding stage and they’ve really walked the talk in building Teachmint with us day in and day out- be it strategy, execution or just opening any doors in the ecosystem. Grateful to be in this journey with them.
Co-founder of Teachmint
“Better has played a significant role and has been the mainstay for the growth of TREAD in its very initial stages. Vaibhav is on the lookout for great ideas and always ready to help wherever needed.
The level of understanding and opinions have been a valuable addition to the growth and development of the brand. If you have a vision, better is there to show you the path that leads right to it.”
Co-founder of TREAD
Vaibhav has been a source of sage advice from the 1st call itself. He literally defines the "conviction bet" investor because of his ability to take contrarian bets.
What amazes me is how well he manages to have such deep context about the businesses he partners with.
Our brainstorming sessions have always been fun & Vaibhav has always been meticulous when it comes to setting up connects that a founder may seek. A great great partner to have in your journey.
Co-founder of eloelo
Vaibhav truly cares about you as a founder and the growth of the company. We got introduced to Better via a common connection. From the start, Vaibhav understood about our space. He asked the right questions, listened carefully and gave us really good strategic advice. While we were very early in our journey, Vaibhav recommended us for Techstars London which changed the course of our startup.
Unlike most VCs, Vaibhav is really helpful even if you are just two founders with an idea. He believes in you. Beyond capital, Vaibhav connects you to the right people and shares his in-depth knowledge to help you move the needle. We are really proud to have Better as our investor.
Co-founder of Docsumo
“Vaibhav has always been the go-to man for everything and anything strategy, growth and direction for us. Strongly recommend him to all early-stage founders. Easiest person to talk in good or bad times, never coming across as an investor. If he decides to invest in your company, more often than not he decides to invest in you.”
Co-founder of HyperTest
"Better has been one of our very early backers. Vaibhav did his research before taking our meeting and knew the questions he wanted to ask us. He heard us out, asked his questions, he allowed us to speak and made a commitment of participating in our round during the first meeting itself.
Post that he went on and gave us very strong introductions to other investors and built conviction amongst them as well. From what we have seen, if Vaibhav likes a company, Better will be a strong backer who gives the right introductions to people who will invest. Better has a strong network, which Vaibhav uses wisely.
Co-founders of Skill-Lync
“Better Capital has been the perfect backer for us right from the start. Vaibhav truly cares for his portfolio companies and is always trying to help. He made numerous introductions and helped us connect to the right mentors and partners.
He is very comfortable to talk to and that makes it easier for us to be candid with him when things haven't been going well. Bijak is fortunate to have an investor with such superb business understanding and helpful attitude.”
Co-founder of Bijak
"Better and I were introduced through a close friend and in the first call itself - I was pulled towards Vaibhav's blunt attitude, operator-like thinking and passion to help founders and businesses scale.
He is able to step into founders' shoes to get a deeper level of understanding of the space and the business. Vaibhav's patient listening skills, operators experience, insights, and perspective, nurturing nature, and widespread network of investors and founders - makes him an invaluable investor and resource for an early-stage entrepreneur.
Once convinced, he is a strong backer through thick and thin. If you are an early stage passionate founder - building in a large disruptive, I highly recommend speaking to Better."
Co-founder of Jai Kisan
“Vaibhav moves fast and leads with conviction when making investments. He is conscious of founder's time and proactively ensures you're spending maximum time building the company. Being an entrepreneur himself, he is able to empathise with you well and he understands how ambiguous situations are to be navigated.
He is also internally driven by the metric FounderNPS and that comes across in his interactions. Vaibhav makes very relevant introductions helping with direct business development, partnerships and introductions to investors in his network. 90% investors don't add value, in my view, Vaibhav is amongst the best of the remaining 10%”
Co-founder of Nova Benefits
“Our partnership with Better Capital has been just amazing from Day1. Vaibhav is one of the smartest VCs in the ecosystem, very bold and amazing at product.
Working with Better feels like working with an extended team. Whether it’s deciding product roadmaps, business strategy or long term vision, Vaibhav has been our sounding board.
I would recommend Better to anyone who wants to build an amazing company out of India. Especially if you are building a product first company. Having Vaibhav on-board, will make a lot of difference.”
