Suvan Ventures will be investing in the early (pre-seed and seed) stages. Companies having at least their MVP (Minimum Viable Product) in place can apply. If it is a revenue generating company, it is even better.

The challenges for SaaS companies are unique in nature. Early in their journey, they need help in getting the right product market fit and GTM strategy in place. Later on, they need help with marketing, channels, partnerships and future financings. Suvan Ventures provides portfolio companies with hands-on mentoring across their whole life cycle, not just from the Suvan Ventures team but also  from a diverse group of experienced professionals in India and the US. The founders can consider Suvan Ventures to be an extension of their own team with whom they can freely brainstorm strategy and execution.

Bringing the experience of the past
to build the future


Founder, Firsthive

Radhesh is an incredible partner to the founder. I have found him very engaged, empathetic and invested in our success emotionally, beyond just the money. Most importantly, he is always available and just a call away. He is a wonderful sounding board, always ready to work the network and thinking about the company – like an extension of our team.


Co-founder, Airavana

Our interactions with Radhesh started with exchanging sentiments from the markets, insights from potential customers, what we are planning to build, what our long term vision is, etc. Those were really healthy discussions and it was not just the Arka team who got to know about our thought process but we also gained from their understanding of the market. It was great to know the way the Arka team was analyzing the market, their GTM analysis, technical ability to understand the cloud platform that we are building etc. Will highly recommend Radhesh to every B2B cross border startup who are looking beyond just money in their early investors.



I have had the pleasure of working with Radhesh both as an investor and a mentor helping us with product, GTM strategy and much more. He is one of the rare VCs that is deeply empathetic to the founder journey, goes the extra mile to understand the market & business and truly gets hands-on and helps when required. I strongly believe his experience and connections can be a great asset to any early stage company. He deeply understands market trends and changes in a way most VCs don’t. Radhesh contributes hands-on experience from day 1 and brings in meaningful connections and introductions that shape your business in a progressive way. I am convinced that Radhesh’s conviction for exploring new tech and deep empathy for founders can be a great asset to any early stage company.

Radhesh has made an enormous difference to our business from the time he has invested in us and continues to make a difference. He has greatly expanded the investors, customers, and partner reach. Radhesh and Arka Venture Labs have been proactive and have played a crucial role in our success with their excellent coaching and insights into what we needed to succeed as a seed-stage venture. We have never worked with such an empathetic, dedicated, and hard-working team that genuinely cares about our venture’s success and growth. They are more like an extended team than just a VC. They will make a significant difference for you and your business – just trust their process.
