His entrepreneurship and go-to-market experience and expertise will be a massive value addition to our portfolio founders, while we continue to deliver exceptional results for our investors,”said Managing Partner Siddhartha Ahluwalia. “We’re doing two things at Neon – building the best SaaS portfolio out of India and actively working with our portfolio founders to help them scale fast. With Gagan coming in, we are bolstering our capabilities in both these areas,”
Josan’s appointment closely follows Neon Fund’s announcement of their third fund, worth $25 million.
“The India SaaS story is just getting started. The next two decades will see unprecedented growth,” said Josan. “I was pulled towards Neon by their refreshing approach toward early-stage investments – not only working with the best SaaS startups across the country, but going above and beyond to help accelerate their journey to USD 10 million ARR.”
“Having Gagan’s support in our global expansion has been invaluable. His insights into the US market have helped us in refining our GTM,” said Vivek K, founder of iZooto and an LP in the Neon Fund. “I am confident that his contributions will further propel Neon Fund’s portfolio companies.”
