Our Portfolio Design
We focus on all stages of companies, thereby optimizing on the risk-reward outcomes. Earlier stage companies have higher degree of risk, but offer higher return multipliers, and later stage companies have relatively lesser degree of risk, and therefore offer a lesser return multiplier. Balancing risk and reward is at the heart of what we do.

"Sprint AIF is a fund that stands out from the rest; with successful and experienced founders and investors who are uniquely positioned to identify lucrative investment opportunities in the startup ecosystem. Having collaborated with the founders and fund managers on various investment opportunities, I have developed strong trust in their thorough due diligence process, attention to detail, and their strong network within the startup community. Investing in Sprint has not only provided me with a broader perspective and understanding of the startup ecosystem but has also added a unique asset class to my investment portfolio, with high potential returns. Sprint's ability to spot promising startups before they hit the mainstream has allowed me to take advantage of lucrative opportunities that I wouldn't have been able to access otherwise."

"It has been my pleasure to work with Sousthav and his team at Sprint. Having worked with Sousthav in other ventures for the past 6 years, I have high confidence in him and his team at Sprint. My involvement with Sprint has been an adventure. I have been fortunate to be introduced to various start up investment opportunities (and I am hoping some will become unicorns). I look forward to mutual success."
