TEJA Ventures


Teja Ventures is the first pan-Asian venture capital fund committed to investing with a gender lens. We believe gender lens investing goes beyond investing into women led or women owned businesses Ð and also includes the creation of product and services which impact women positively as users, consumers and players in the wider ecosystem. We see gender lens as a way to examine a companyÕs strategic advantage, risk and return, besides objective investment criteria. We believe there are significant opportunities in the following verticals from a gender lens perspective: financial services, online to offline consumption, content and education and healthcare.
