About Us

Founded in 2006 by alumni of the Indian Institute of Management, Lucknow, IndigoEdge is a leading Investment Bank headquartered in Bangalore, India.  We have carved a niche for ourselves as the go-to partners for cutting edge technology companies and consumer brands that are on a fast growth curve and looking to raise capital.

The IndigoEdge team can be described as ‘Entrepreneurs for Entrepreneurs’ and as our clients often say, ‘they are more than just investment bankers, they are growth partners ‘. IndigoEdge has been an entrepreneurial journey that first started in B-School, and that probably explains our exceptional ability to relate to your journey and be emotionally vested in your success.

Our reputation, deep focus on fundamentals, and an eye on the future coupled with our ability to make ‘value creating’ deals happen consistently sets us apart.

There was a rumour doing the rounds about five students who had signed out of the placement process. The students felt that taking a high paying job might just place them in their comfort zones too early in life and it would be difficult to break out of the cycle, once in. Those rumours came to fruition, as we took the plunge to embrace “starting up” as a religion.

We will let you in on a secret. We wanted an available domain name with a ‘color and noun’ that we liked. However, intuitively we got it right – because that is (i.e. – pun intended!) what we do. Indigo is the colour of the third eye. It evokes intuition, perception & inner wisdom.

Our edge has been our ability to stay ahead of the curve when identifying new spaces intuitively coupled with strong perceptive abilities to identify and attract great founding teams.

A two story home in the outskirts of Bangalore which doubled up as home and office was the start of the entrepreneurial journey which was bootstrapped. A medical tourism venture that ran out of capital, a few consulting gigs, a couple of co-founders lesser, and we got back to what we were most passionate about: “start-ups and starting up”.

Our empathy, respect, curiosity and fascination for anyone starting up – meant our desire to be the “knowledge and financial” bridge to catalyse business journeys comes naturally to us. It’s been a fascinating journey so far. 60 plus companies and USD 350 million in deal value and still counting.

At IndigoEdge, we believe in challenging our limits.

Pushing limits sometimes requires breaking rules. We do not compromise on certain values.
We are dead serious to a point that we have a list. You can hold us to it!

We share what we know and we learn from everyone. For us learning is like breathing. It keep us alive.

It is all about doing what is right, rather than being right.

We challenge status quo continuously.

You get what you see. No hidden surprises.

The Road Ahead

We started from scratch. We took a fresh approach to what was a dynamically evolving eco system. We wrote our own rules and blended it with accepted best practices. We demonstrated the ability to consistently repeat our success and move up the value chain and grow consistently.

We strive to be better than the best and look to be India’s leading investment bank in the technology space.

We want to be the first port of call for founders and funds in the technology space on the merit of our organization and the track-record  we have built.

Over the last few years, We have piloted underwriting some our deals from our balance sheet. We aspire to underwrite 10% of the deal value that we execute and put our money where our mouth is.
