ABOUT US

Snow Leopard Global Capital Management is a global alternative asset manager with offices in Pune, India and New York, NY.

Its founders have known each other for over thirty years since growing up together in New York City and attending school there.

Since then, each founder has managed family office capital for the past ten years in a variety of private and public investments from businesses to macro investments to land and developments.

The founders have immersed themselves extensively since their childhoods into the Indian and USA investments ecosystems such that they have proprietary relationships in each of the two very different geographic and cultural regions that allow the firm to access unique founders, capital and networks unavailable to most firms. Their professional and academic experiences provide them natural and unforced in’s into these networks that yield these unique opportunities.

The following is an overview of the firm’s current products:

VENTURE CAPITAL

We invest capital from Global and Indian family offices and institutional investors to invest into select, high potential, high growth-rate, technology-enabled Indian and Global businesses.

PUBLIC INVESTMENTS STRATEGIES

We invest capital from Indian family offices and institutional investors in a variety of USA managed strategies including those with debt-like volatility and equity-like returns to those more focused on value-oriented approaches or technology approaches to equities. Ultimately the goal is to help Indians geographically diversify their wealth and create a pool of value outside of the country.

VENTURE CAPITAL

For the past seven years, Snow Leopard’s team has managed a portfolio of eleven private businesses based out of India and the USA. These companies include consumer, technology, healthcare, agricultural, finance and enterprise businesses.

The belief has been that an industry-agnostic approach would not only risk-mitigate the firm from some of the specific-industry related maladies that can occur, but also generate a knowledge base that can be shared across industries.

The firm’s professionals have invested capital across multiple capital raising rounds into complex deal structures around the globe. Snow Leopard is among the earliest institutional investors to place capital into some of the world’s leading companies.

The firm invests in companies with passionate and resilient founders, tremendous market opportunities and highly unique, differentiated business models.
