FOUNDER STORIES

Nukul Upadhye

Nukul Upadhye Co-founder of Bijak

“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.”

Amit Gupta

Amit Gupta Founder of Yulu

“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.”

Surya P. & Sarang I. Co-founders, Skill-Lync

"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.

Shachin Bharadwaj Co-founder & CEO, Markk

"Better has been an ideal early investor for us. As a product person himself, Vaibhav has been our goto guy to help us with goto market and product market fit strategies. He understands board dynamics (with VCs) very well and advices founders keeping both sides in mind. He gives honest & blunt feedback which I personally think is very important for founders to hear in early days.

Aakash & Siddhant

Aakash & Siddhant Co-founders, Jovian.ml

"Better has been extremely helpful & supportive right from the start, when we had little more than an idea and a prototype. Vaibhav was one of the few people who could see the big picture, & made relevant introductions with data science leaders in India & Silicon Valley. This helped us validate our hypotheses & define our direction. Vaibhav also helped us closely with every step of the fundraising process: deciding how much to raise, finding the right investors, finding the right partners for accounting & legal paperwork & much more. Apart from being an investor, we’re really lucky to have Vaibhav as a friend, mentor & advisor.
