Why Invest in Upekkha Rolling Fund?

SaaS is here to stay and thrive

Over the last 15 years, the index of public SaaS companies returned 4.9x. That’s way more than the 3x expectation of a VC fund. Over the next 15 years more software companies will move to SaaS. There is massive room for industry growth. While early-stage investing is challenging, doing it the right way will be less costly than buying public SaaS stock and return better ROI.

India will be the powerhouse of SaaS

Once upon a time, the best technology startups were all located in Silicon Valley. But these days, thanks to the crazy rise in cost of living, and property in Silicon Valley, tech startups are no longer location-limited. Many SaaS blockbusters like Shopify, Atlassian, and Freshworks emerged outside the US.
 

Giving investors access to outliers

Access and differentiation are the biggest challenges for individual investors. UP Fund, our rolling fund on the Angel.co platform broadens your access to SaaS outliers. You can start and stop your investment like a subscription, with a small check size and no 12-year capital lock-in. The fund offers a TinySeed-style term sheet, to align founder goals and investor incentives to maximize both profit and optionality.
