Time to rejoice women entreprenuers – SAHA is India’s first women’s venture capital fund

When we look at businesses with women at the helm —startups founded and run solely by women, the number is small and when we talk of the ones who have received funding, it does not even cross single digits. India ranks at a dismal 70 out of 77 countries included. Looking at this parity Ankita Vashistha launched Saha Fund, a venture capital fund for women centric businesses that is run by women. An electronics and communications engineer, Ankita went to Cranfield School of Management in UK and did her masters in Finance. She has worked in organisations like Aureos capital Abraaj group, Tholons Capital and Tholons Consulting. Ankita is Managing Partner at Tholons Capital which focuses on seed and Series A rounds. She joined the India Angel Investors to understand the ecosystem better. Ankita has been in the investment space for eight years now in India, UK, US, Singapore and Philippines. Early on she noticed a trend that despite companies having women co-founders, and even in key management roles, women founders rarely ever spoke up when it came to pitching. Source: Yourstory
