Trifecta looks overseas for its 7.5 billion rupee second fund

By M. Sriram

Trifecta Capital is planning to raise a quarter of its upcoming second venture debt fund of ₹750 crore from overseas investors, said a senior executive. The fund, India’s first homegrown venture debt provider, will raise the money from institutional investors and family offices next year.

“We will look for capital from near-shore countries such as Singapore, China, Hong Kong and the Middle East,” said Rahul Khanna, co-founder and managing partner, Trifecta Capital. “Venture funding is a global business and when our investee companies go global, we want to have the ability to help them with both dollar and rupee funding”, he added.
