Transition VC, a Bengaluru-based energy transition-focused venture capital fund, has launched its maiden fund with a target corpus of INR 400 crore ($49 million), including a greenshoe option of INR 200 crore.
Transition VC will make seed investments in startups across sectors such as e-mobility, green hydrogen, energy storage, net zero journey in buildings and climate-tech. With ticket size ranging from $500K to $1 million, it is looking to support up to 40 early-stage startups over the next three years.
Transition VC recently received its SEBI approval, and is eyeing to mark the first close of the fund by the end of this calendar year. The fund was founded last year by a team of entrepreneurs and business professionals.
Prior to launching Transition VC, its team invested in e-mobility startups like Charge+Zone and Exponent Energy. While Exponent Energy is enabling rapid charging for commercial vehicles, Charge+Zone is one of the country’s largest charge point operators.
In addition to investments in Indian startups, the Transition VC fund will also allocate 25% of the fund value for global startups. “For its global investments, Transition VC has a concentrated strategy to invest in developed market products that could also be introduced to an emerging market like India,” stated the company.
