Decacorn


"Decacorn" is the new buzzword of the start-up world. Coined by Bloomberg in 2015, Decacorn refers to new breed start-ups that are worth US$ 10 billion or more. In late 2013, only Facebook was in that category, but as of today Uber, Xiaomi, Airbnb, Palantir, Snapchat, and 4 others have made that list.

Tech startups worth US$ 1 billion are often referred to as "Unicorns". Today, with more than 150 of them around and fast growing, there is nothing unique or rare about Unicorn any more. Unicorn and Decacorn might be imaginary, but this new generation of start-ups with disruptive technology is not a myth, but a reality – the new normal.

Our Story



Decacorn Capital is a cross-border venture funding initiative, which invests in game changing start-ups enabled by innovative use of technology and led by high-caliber, passionate founders who are out there with the mission to either create a true delight or solve a real problem.

At Decacorn Capital, we seek to provide global access to start-ups we invest in through cross border initiatives undertaken out of Singapore, Tel Aviv, New Delhi and London.

We endeavour to connect 2 billion underserved consumers in South East Asia and India, with pioneering, deep-tech work in America and Europe, thus unlocking superior returns for our portfolio investments and our investors.

Approach

Approach



We look for investing in game changing businesses that are run by high-calibre people and uses technology as the key driver to a clear path to monetisation.

At Decacorn we have adopted a bar-belled approach of investing in start-ups that are in Early/Mid stage of their life cycle, offering large multiplier effect on a low valuation, as well as in late stage secondary offerings that provide a big margin of safety due to their proven business model.

Our sweet spot hovers around US$500k, with US$50k to US$ 2 million being the outliers, usually in a co-investment round with stalwart angels, bellwether VC funds, accelerators and incubators.
