oneassist_logo timthumbLightspeed India MD Bejul Somaia was interviewed by Paramita Chatterjee of the Economic Times newspaper about Lightspeed India’s experience with incubating both OneAssist and LimeRoad.  Here’s the link to the article.

We are actively looking to incubate companies in these spaces, as well as back established companies and startups in these areas.

Our experience has been very positive:

“We were involved in incubating two companies in the last 12 months – OneAssist and LimeRoad – and have been very pleased with the results so far. Being able to work closely with teams during the incubation period really helps set the right foundation and strategy for the business. The incubation approach is very time-intensive, with no certainty of a successful outcome. But we will build on our positive experience by catalysing new companies in an organised manner.”

What sectors are Lightspeed looking to invest in?

“Education technology, financial technology, healthcare services, internet, mobile, software and software-as-a-service.”
