We believe outlier founders and ideas shape the future of humanity.

The reason we come to work is to back founders whose outlier ideas when successful can make a significant impact on the world. We want to enable such founders and improve their odds of being successful. It’s our way to serve the missions and causes that matter. 

The founders we partner with generate returns, the majority of which go to our largely non-profit LP base and serve worthwhile causes like preserving our planet, education, fighting poverty and advancing the field of medicine.

About Us

Peak XV Partners (Formerly Sequoia Capital India & SEA) is a leading venture capital and growth investing firm investing across India, South East Asia and beyond. Our new name, Peak XV (pronounced Peak Fifteen) was the name used for Mount Everest before it was called that. To us, it signifies the relentless pursuit of greatness by our founders, in spite of challenges along the way. It embodies everything we believe about building long-lasting businesses that stand tall and inspire greatness.

Over the last 17 years of our operations in the region, Peak XV has grown to manage over $9bn in capital across 13 funds and invested in over 400 companies, of which ~40 companies have achieved revenues of over $100MM. Our team of professionals work across 5 offices – Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Singapore and Dubai and span 14 nationalities. 

Our ethos is to partner closely with our founders to improve their ability to succeed in their missions. Beyond the investment team, our team consists of over 60 operators that work with our portfolio companies across Human Capital, Strategic Development, Marketing, Public Policy, Portfolio Finance and Technology & Product.

Our approach is to work side by side with founders to help them realise their ambitions. We distil what we’ve learned and offer it to founders from bespoke advice and support to our cohort and community-based programs such as Surge, Spark, Pathfinders, Pitstop, Build and Guild. 

We aim to be the most cherished partners for audacious founders who are looking to break the status quo and build enduring companies of the future. We partner with them as early as two people with a paper plan to as late as when they look to go public. We usually can stay invested all the way through the IPO and beyond. We are there for the journey.
