Startups to Look Out For — Identifying Hidden Gems

Eximius Ventures
Feb 18 · 2 min read

Over the course of the past one year at Eximius, we have received over a thousand pitches from startups. Like any other VC, we find only one game changer among every 100 startups. However, being a micro VC means spotting hidden gems who are still in their nascent stage.

At Eximius, our investment team is always on the lookout for innovative and high-potential startups. For those who aren’t familiar with the inner workings of a VC, we evaluate and source these startups after weeks of research.

This often leads to discovering startups that tick off every criteria on our checklist — from an incredible founding team to the initial product-market fit. However, sometimes, this also brings us to startups that we want to support but cannot due to an unfortunate mismatch. The startup could have a capital requirement that is more than what a micro VC can fulfill. Or it could need more patient capital. Or it might not belong to the sectors we invest in.

That aside, the businesses are worth a shot and we’d still vouch for them. To help you spot these emerging players in 2021, we are kickstarting a campaign beginning this week.

Over the next few months, we will be sharing a series of early-stage startups you should look out for. If you’re an angel investor, early-stage VC, an upcoming entrepreneur, or just someone interested in the startup ecosystem, this will help you know the kind of founders and startups who can make it big and why.

To follow the campaign, find us on our Linkedin or Twitter page, and if you drop by, we’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments section.
