Co Founder, CEO at Bold Kiln
Jan 2015 - Present
Bold Kiln is a one stop shop solution provider for startups and entrepreneurs. We help startups across lifestages, right from when someone has a vague sense of an idea, to when they've raised $5-10Mn. Broadly the following buckets to what we do: - Information: We collect, curate and create a lot of information of use to startups. E.g. a database of investors, tagged by ticket size, sectors, location with contact details; a repository of templates of document, contracts, excel models, presentations; a highly curated set of actionable insight+gyaan based reads and more - Services: We can help you with whatever you need. We do a lot of design (branding + UI/UX), development (web+mobile), digital marketing inhouse. And we've vetted partners for your other needs (legal, accounting, PR, videos etc.) - Products: Wherever we have a hypothesis on a product that can be useful for startups, we're working on building it. - Investment: We invest (via a partner fund) at the angel-seed stage in startups with strong teams, a solid MVP, genuine traction and a ambitious + clear vision. - Co-working: We'd love to have you and your team come co-work with us at our Noida office. It's a startup - so I do what's needed to be done, across the board.
