Stanford Angels India – Fellow and Intern

Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs India is a forum for interesting early stage companies who are looking to raise funds from Stanford alums. It is not a fund, does not do crowd-sourced fundraising and nor does it provide any investment advice or recommendations. Any due diligence, negotiation or investment activity conducted by members or officers of SA&E is conducted solely as an individual of their own accord as an accredited investor, not as an officer or representative of SA&E, Stanford University, or Stanford Alumni Association. 

The forum has helped facilitate over 25 investments in 5 years for its members, including Unacademy, Pixxel, Terra.do, amongst many others.
