How does BoldCap operate?

At BoldCap we understand the journey from 0 to 1, having been ex-operators ourselves. As the first ones to commit to a round, we are by design long-term investors who are committed to supporting our portfolio companies through every step of their growth journey.

Our B2B software focus has allowed us to build a wealth of knowledge in this space, making us a valuable resource for our founders. In addition, we continue to develop deep relationships with a global network of late-stage investors who actively invest in Indian founders.

We pride ourselves on being our founder’s best friend on the cap table, providing the friendship, guidance, and support required on the startup journey.

Sathya Nellore Sampat

General Partner

Engineer turned operator turned VC

I am a builder at heart and I love helping founders in their 0-1 journey. In 2016 I launched a product accelerator in the US to help founders launch their MVPs. In 2018 I launched a startup to help SMB and mid market companies with their data modernisation, which we scaled to $3M in 2020 and got an investment from MongoDB (NSDQ:MDB). In 2021 we launched BoldCap to back Indian founders building global software products.
