Founded by Neha Khanna and five others, this online deal-making service is planning to draw heavily from its founders’ investment banking experiences as it makes it a business to match startups with investors – and then some.
“The point is, once the entrepreneur is signed up, the onus is on us to ensure that we identify who the right investors could be,” Neha Khanna, director at Enablers, said. She founded Enablers as an extension of Value Prolific Consulting Services (ValPro), a ten-year-old investment bank with offices in New Delhi and Mumbai.
“We’re not here to just find an investor, but to actually conduct the entire process – from helping with negotiations, dealing with term sheets, assisting with due diligence, and then helping with the commercial closure of the agreement.”
Enablers competes with the likes of Wishberry and Letsventure in India, both of which help startups find investment through crowdsourcing or angel investors.
