The Beginning

World V

World V is the brainchild of the founders of our two partners. Two IIT’ians with global exposure and outlook decided to start a platform from India to explore options of investing in projects, which shall drive global outreach for Indian entrepreneurs and help create a growth vector for the base economy and at the same time give their Investors ROI scenarios that ensures their continuous exposure with their venture.

It is with this view and vision World V was created in March of 2019 after planning and designing of nearly 15 months. The thinking was to invest in companies that have sound offerings and bring a much needed change of approach in portfolio evaluation process. The thought was to ensure the Investor’s buy-in & ensure continued investment into a space that shall nurture and grow the elements to establish a continuous trend that will transcend into the acquired portfolios and ensure investor interests.
