Batting for the Future
Most ideas are good, but one of the key differentiating factors between a successful business and a failed one is the founder’s ability to build high-performance teams around the shared purpose that have a bias towards the execution and have the grit and persistence to make a difference. Successful founders can come from any background, ethnicity, experience, geolocation, etc. – we see it as our purpose to find them even when they are rejected by many for non-commercial reasons.
At BAT VC, our goal is to “BAT” for our founders and create compelling value for startups and LPs. For Fund 1, we provide strategic advisory and actively make introductions to aid the product-market fit; our goal for subsequent funds is to build lean resource pools to support other critical operating areas. As a result, we will dramatically reduce the probability of failure by focusing on a select few high-risk-high impact variables and improving the likelihood of achieving product-market fit.
We are a team of operators and serial entrepreneurs with a proven individual track record of raising money, building startups, and creating value for investors through successful exits. In addition, one more thing connects the founding partners – Cricket. Ethnically, we come from a cricket-loving nation, and the name BAT VC is inspired by “batting” in cricket, which means making “runs” for the team. In our current world, “batting” and “runs” implies supporting the founders with all our collective strengths and creating value for all the stakeholders – founders, investors, and LPs.
