UAE venture capital firm AUM Ventures has launched its first US$30 million fund that aims to invest in early and pre-growth stage tech and consumer-focused Indian startups.

The fund, which is regulated by the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM), was formally launched during the inaugural Abu Dhabi Finance Week which was hosted by ADGM from 14-18 November 2022.

With offices in Abu Dhabi, Bangalore and Mumbai, AUM Ventures seeks to bridge Indian startups with global markets, and bring ideas from India’s large technical diaspora back to India.

The firm has invested in 11 Indian companies to date, including an investment in B2B building material procurement platform GlobalFair.
