Disruptium has funds of Rs 15 crore of its own, which will be used for deployment in early-stage, sector agnostic firms with a cheque size of Rs 50 lakh (approx. $69000) to Rs 1 crore (approx. $138,000), which was raised via their own money and other investor contributions.
Disruptium plans to find and build approximately 25 businesses throughout its first three cohorts. It also intends to lend services to 1,000 or more current businesses. In the first 18 months of operations, the organization plans to sponsor 100 enterprises, including 30 from its inaugural fund. The next fund will be worth Rs 50 crore ($6.9 million) and launched in 2022.
