Indian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association (IVCA)

IVCA is a member-based national organization that promotes these risk assets within India and throughout the world, encouraging investment in high growth companies.

IVCA members comprise VC and PE firms, institutional investors, banks, incubators, angel groups, corporate advisors, accoun tants, lawyers, government bodies, academic institutions and service providers in the industry. A majority of the members consist of general partners and include active VC and PE funds in India, and nearly 90% of the total assets under management in India. The funds provide capital for seed ventures, early stage companies, later stage expansion, and growth finance for management buyouts and buy-ins of established companies.

IVCA undertook a new constitution in 2010, and a new democratically elected Executive Committee, a working group of Indian fund managers presides over all industry matters. The body connects corporates, service providers and policymakers – and its membership numbers have grown at an excellent pace.
