Sequoia to Raise $1 Billion India-Focused Fund

Menlo Park, California-based Sequoia Capital plans to raise up to $1 billion for its sixth India-focused fund, making it the largest corpus raised for India markets. The corpus will be raised across multiple vehicles, such as as venture capital focused on technology companies, and growth-stage capital focused on consumer and other non-tech investments.

Sequoia Capital’s team in India also leads investments in Southeast Asia and has set up an office in Singapore. This region will be a significant part of the strategy in the upcoming fund for Sequoia Capital India, which manages about $3.2 billion of investments.
