Dallas, Texas 2M BioTech partners with research groups, universities, inventors, and early stage biotech firms to accelerate the commercialization of their products and technologies. Their primary business purpose is to support The Morton H. Meyerson Family Fund and their communities. Dallas, Texas At first glance 2M appears to be similar to many other investment firms, however upon closer look you will find that we are very different.
We expect that this big shift will drive both reach and usage and also provide a huge fillip to the mobile web and internet sector.
While the urban consumer has chosen to use the internet for mostly aspirational reasons, folks in Indian small towns have started seeing the benefits of reach and distribution that the internet provides and are using the internet to solve significantly utilitarian problems.
Beneficiaries will be the education, healthcare and financial product sectors, which could be significantly benefited on account of reach, distribution and digitization of analog data and content.
We believe that this mix of consumer demand, outstanding local innovation and development of soft infrastructure for the consumer web, represent the perfect storm for early-stage investing in the internet and mobile space in India and are excited about backing opportunities in this space.
Strategy The Fund proposes to make early stage, as well as early growth investments, in companies focused on the nascent mobile, internet and electronic payment markets in India. We believe that these markets are at an inflection point of growth and will benefit tremendously from a favourable young demographic, rapid consumerization and increasing penetration of always-on internet.
The Fund would be managed by an experienced Indian team and is supported by the Patni Family, promoters of a top 5 Indian IT company who are the anchor investors in the Fund.
While the market is rapidly growing there is still a stark absence of institutional venture funds writing the first cheque into promising young companies.
Our strategy is to bridge this gap and write the first cheque to best-in-class entrepreneurs, addressing large opportunities with unique products and great business models.
We expect to invest in companies across e-Commerce, Online Travel, Online Advertising and Marketing, Mobile and Digital Content, Electronic Payments and other interesting areas that leverage internet for scale, distribution or low cost customer acquisition.
Ideally, we like to be the first institutional investors, early enough in the lifecycle of the company to help make a meaningful contribution to the outcome of these companies. As we take the risk of investing early, we look to back opportunities that could provide us outsized returns.
Our investment decisions focus on the entrepreneurs we invest in and the dynamics of the industry that they operate in. Markets that excite us have the potential for strong long-term growth.
We look for competent entrepreneurs who either have a compelling consumer insight or expertise into an industry that creates a competitive edge. Ideally, these entrepreneurs will also have experience in building strong teams.
We spend time with companies early in their life cycle providing help around business strategy, team, and financing, as appropriate. The blend of investing and operating experience of our team, positions us well to add value to our portfolio companies and thereby investors of choice for quality teams in India.
Value Addition - Nirvana as a business partner We invest in companies in which we feel comfortable that we can add value through our domain knowledge and networks.
Many early-stage entrepreneurs need assistance building out their management team and we use our extended network and brand to help entrepreneurs attract the right talent. Further, these companies face important questions related to their strategy and business model and we work with them to help them think through these issues.
We expect our investee companies will often need follow-on financing and we help them think about the right amount of capital to raise and position them for future rounds of capital.
We also introduce our companies to strategic partners and prospective customers. We expect portfolio CEOs will find their Nirvana director to be their most active non-executive board member.
