Celebrating our CEO’s Birthday

To everybody, he is India’s most favorite Reality Tv Show Director with over 100 shows under his belt, but to us, he’s our lover boy who is still young at heart and a fierce perfectionist on set. A week before his birthday all of our minds were put to test to figure out the best gift for him and as far as I can say, that was the toughest task given to us, not because its difficult to please him, but because we all love him so much and his gift mattered the most to us.
Finally came ‘The day’, so we decided to celebrate it with the entire team and all the family members of our loving Founders and Producer. On we went to a resort located some 45kms from Bangalore in Anekal, a beautiful luscious green resort with a swimming pool and a lot of activities and a whole lot of fun. We reached our destination on the 16th of April evening, on reaching we explored the place and immediately fell in love with our selection. Then came midnight where we cut the cake on top of a flying bridge overlooking a pond with huts on it, just blissful and an unforgettable moment. After the celebration we all headed over to the dance floor, right beside a campfire that kept us in the mood for a long time, we danced to till the sun rose and went to bed in the morning.

Only to realize that we all couldn’t just leave the place after one night so we decided to spend his entire birthday there, so we stayed for another day doing rope activities and spent the sunny afternoon playing water polo in the Olympic-sized pool.
After 2 full days of a magnificent celebration we, unfortunately, had to leave the resort behind and come back to reality, driving back 45kms after a tiresome trip was also a very joyful experience with some loud music and entertainment on the way back. We then dropped our Loverboy home and went our separate only to meet back just a few hours later for work on the next, but none the less it was a day all of us would cherish and remember for a very long time.
Happy Birthday Sanjeev Sir,
With love,
Kuberan’s House.

Kuberan’s House announces its first Kubera

Kuberan’s House has roped in Mr. Anirudh A Damani as the first Kubera Mr. Anirudh A Damani for the show. He is the Founder and Managing Partner of Artha Venture Fund (AVF), India’s first MicroVC fund for early-age start-ups. While the preparations for this entrepreneurship themed show by the team is already in full swing, this move of teaming up with him as their first Kubera (investor) will eventually give the show all the more mileage and attract more startups to apply across India.

Mr. Anirudh A Damani, having pursued a double major in Business Administration and Economics from Austin College, Texas, has gathered extensive work experience of working across 85 start-ups all over the globe. He is a recognized personality in the start-up industry and is known for his unique style of working. He is in constant search of budding ideas and companies that are unknown, possesses the capability of becoming a start-up, and are worthy of receiving funding.

Mr. Anirudh Ashok Damani started his entrepreneurial journey as a door to door salesman in West Texas for US First Energy. With his skill set and talent, he helped the organization increase its ranking and sales and became the head of the commercial sales division in just 6 months. He continued working consistently and there was never looking back.

Presently, he is counted as one of the most sought out investors in the Indian start-up space today. Being also a part of the global group of mentors and advisors, he works with the sole aim to provide the required support, connections, and guidance to the founders of the aspiring firms. He prefers working closely with the founders of the company so that collaboratively they can develop prototypes, find their first customer, decipher unit economics, recruit the second line of management, and at the same time help the organization to grow and prosper. 

He is an influencer in the start-up and venture capitalist space and has brought about a change in the lives of over 35,000 followers on social media through his expertise and experiences. Along with blogging on his website, he also hosts a weekly live show and podcast on his Instagram handle wherein he takes up queries and shares his learning about the start-up ecosystem with the audience.  

Given the diverse portfolio and social media presence that he has, he is the apt selection for being a part of India’s Biggest Startup Show as the first Kubera. Having vast experience of the industry at the global level, and his considerate characteristic with the zeal to help aspiring entrepreneurs and ideas makes him a natural choice to be a unique part of the show, on top of being an investor Mr. Damani will also be a mentor to the startups along with best domain partners across India.

Expressing his excitement over the same, Mr. Anirudh A Damani, Founder and Managing Partner, Artha Venture Fund (AVF),  said, ‘’ Kuberan’sHouse is known for its unique approach and dedication to the start-up industry. Their entrepreneurship theme-based show is another step in this direction and being a part of such an innovative idea is a great opportunity. It resonates with what I do and wish to do- to help the budding entrepreneurs and give them the required assistance in terms of guidance and investment. I am always on the lookout for unique ideas worthy of receiving the necessary support. I am elated and I am eagerly looking forward to my stint as an investor on screen and I am sure it’s going to be a good roller coaster journey for us. The thought process and the vision of the founders Sanjeev, Ram, and Ranjith and the dearth of such a unique platform for the start-up ecosystem is the prime reason for me to be a part of this initiative. I hope to extend my best support and also take away something valuable from the participants as well. ’’

Speaking on the announcement, Sanjeev K Kumar, CEO, and Co-Founder, Kuberan’s House said, ‘’The show will soon be under production and would provide for great content, ideas and invigorating infotainment that will be the first of its kind to an Indian audience. Meanwhile, screening of over 16,000 applicants from diverse backgrounds is happening right now. We are happy to have received such a good response but we are all the more ecstatic about getting on board with Mr. Damani as our first Kubera for the show. Given his diverse portfolio and experiences, he will be an asset to our show and we are sure our participants will get a chance to learn a lot under his guidance. With his energetic and knowledgeable persona, his proactive nature and charisma that he carries, he is truly going to be the first Venture Capitalist celebrity on television.”

Kuberan’s House has extended the show’s registration until 31st January 2021 to ensure more participation. Segregated into multiple stages along with a thorough filtering process, the show has various perks for all the participants which include funding, Kuberan’s House fellowship, a comprehensive 3-day workshop, and a golden opportunity to perform at the global platform, ‘Open Innovation Week’.

A fresh start to 2021

Our New Year started off on the blissful morning of December 31st with a drive to a beautiful location hidden among majestic western ghats. So let’s go on this journey together.

We gathered at 5 and as usual, some of us were late and so as planned we left at 5:30 for a very memorable new year’s. With our 3 cars off we went to Chickmangalur not knowing what it had in store for us, As team KH drove in 3 different cars with only 14 of us, we had space around us and in our stomachs.  Our first stop was at the inevitable A2B, no drive is complete without some tasty, oily South Indian food. After literally belting every dish there we were set for a 6-hour drive to our final destination ( don’t worry nothing happened to anybody).

When we left the restaurants we started off with some melodious English tunes and like how every drive turns into ours too quickly changed from “Watermelon Sugar” by harry styles to “Tumse milkar” by Lata Mangeshkar. A few 100kms later all of our mobile networks gave haath so what did we do? The medieval stopping of every auto wala or pedestrian and asking them for directions, trusting their directions usually helps but luck might have been passed out that morning, that their directions led us into a broken bridge, and I’m not kidding it was broken. It felt like an episode of khatron ke khiladi, but we made it out alive.

All that felt microscopic when we reached our Homestay: bilagali homestay in the Chikmagalur region. It was filled with lush paddy fields, open grounds, and crispy air. Personally, I’ve never had the oxygen that pure ever before, so I did feel different on the inside, it might have been the company I had but I think the air there had something to do with it. We were greeted by this lovely family that owned the farmhouse, they were so caring towards us that the second we felt that love, all we did was look at each other with a sigh of relief knowing that our New Year’s was going to be one that we would cherish forever.

Apart from their amazing greetings they also fed us with some finger-licking Horanadu food, some of which I can’t even pronounce. And we also had a few other godly creatures with us, yes you guessed it right. There were dogs!!! yes, plural. there were more dogs than fingers in my hands. After a tiring session of catch with Bagira( a baby Newfoundland). We took a jeep through the farm to discover a waterfall, our very own private waterfall. This day just couldn’t get any better, we had the ones we loved around us in a very scenic farmhouse with some amazing dogs and our own waterfall, it was everything anyone needed to live a happy life. After the waterfalls we trekked some more only to find a freshwater pond, just waiting for us to jump in and so we did. A blue pond under the blue sky did feel like a Mani Ratnam movie scene for one.

By the time we finished with this, it almost was night time and the sun had already set. So we decided to camp near the pond, have some snacks and some cold beers. The situation for our New Year’s was set, let me list out: campfire, tasty snacks, cold beer, Kuberans House family, shooting stars, absolutely no traffic along with some gratitude and relief that 2020 was coming to an end. We had the last half an hour of 2020 when we started our toasts and shared what we learned from this year and how we can adapt ourselves for 2021 and be ready for every bowling ball that’s thrown to your face. As it struck 12, we couldn’t have been in a better place. 2020 has taught us all how to love one another, so I hope you enjoyed how we celebrated New Year’s, in a beautiful farmhouse on the outskirts of Chikmagalur. Stay tuned for more of our stories of how we met and how Kuberan’s house, which was just an idea came out to be this huge success not just in our lives but for many more people all over this country.

Have a business idea? We got you.

Have an innovative business idea and looking for capital to monetize it? While reaching out to venture capitalists is the next step, connecting with them can be challenging. And despite the presence of several startup forums across India, only a few provide opportunities for individuals from Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities to connect directly with India’s most proactive investors.

Kuberan’s House, a nucleus organization that invites, develops, streamlines and connects business ideas and inventions with prospective investors and venture capitalists, is attempting to change the narrative.

Bridging the gap between aspiring entrepreneurs and investors

Kuberan’s House is a first and one-of-its-kind platform to source and showcase innovative startup ideas across India and help entrepreneurs get investments from the best panel of investors and venture capitalists. A reality television show featuring Sonu Sood, it simplifies the process of getting an idea funded by turning it into an invigorating primetime content.

A brainchild of Sanjeev K Kumar (CEO and Co-founder), Ram Gowda (MD and Co-founder), and Ranjith Royal (Co-founder), the idea came into being when the world was in a total stand-still due to the pandemic. These three individuals from different facets of life came together and wanted to create something incredible to contribute towards the reality of ‘Make in India’. 

Govind Balakrishna Raju (Chief Strategy Officer) and Srinivas Vasanthala (VP – Operations) joined hands with the founders to execute the process and have played a key role in onboarding partners.

“Kuberan’s House is a startup for other startups. There are several startup forums across India, but none showcase and inspire other startups. And Kuberan’s House is the first of its kind to come up with this idea which brings closed-door investment negotiations to every living room and reaches people from every nook and corner of our country. It brings me immense joy that what started as a small idea has grown into a national initiative today,” says Ram Gowda, MD, and Co-Founder, Kuberan’s House.

A selfless national hero, Sonu Sood, will be the facilitator between the ideators/entrepreneurs and investors and will continue the good work by empowering people to make their dream come true.

Who can apply?

If you’re an ideator or entrepreneur, whether established or not and are looking for investment for an innovative business idea or enterprise, this is the perfect platform to achieve your startup dream.

The top 500 startups pass through a stringent filtering process and are impaneled to the Kuberan’s House ‘Hall of Fame’. Each of them is
handed ‘The Kuberan’s House Fellowship’ certificate as a seal of merit.

The applicants will further be narrowed down to the prime 100 who will be part of a 3-day holistic and exhaustive workshop. Consisting of an exclusive panel of professionals in corporate, finance, strategy, chartered accounting, fund management, legal and public speaking, this workshop aims to project, explore and impart each and every aspect of making a successful pitch to the investors. The final 60 startups are shortlisted to feature on the show. The 15-episode series will feature three ideas in each episode. Unlike a typical reality show with a winner and loser, this series is all about pitching and convincing top investors in the country about the value of your entrepreneurial idea, where every pitch stands a chance to get up to Rs 10 crore funding.

Participants will get the opportunity to pitch to India’s most prominent, proactive, and sector-agnostic investors (Kuberas) from the startup venture community. They will evaluate their ideas, negotiate and close an investment deal, anywhere from Rs 10 lakhs to Rs 10 crore.

What makes Kuberan’s House different?

The USP of Kuberan’s House is that it is the first and one-of-its-kind in India to be televised on a general entertainment channel. Embodying the spirit of the ‘Make in India’ movement, it is a unique initiative that creates opportunity, provides great exposure and visibility to participating startups, and a chance for them to receive mentorship and financial assistance to turn their dream into reality.

What’s in it for you?

This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for top startups to be featured on national television. The top 500 participants will get access to Kuberan’s House’s an incubation and acceleration expertise. The prime 100 will get access to a complete holistic workshop with the domain, business, legal experts, and the final 60 applicants will be specially groomed for presentation and pitching skills, given international exposure, and taken to global platforms like Silicon Valley (USA), Singapore and Israel.

All the shortlisted applicants will also get other benefits in terms of startup credits, perks, and value-additions.

The right platform for your entrepreneurship dream

Kuberan’s House has strong associations with leading institutions, domain, database, and alumni partners such as IIT Kharagpur E-cell, Bits Pilani Technology Business Incubator Hyderabad, EntIISC, 100 Open Startups, TiE Hyderabad, VIT, Rabvik Innovations, Telangana State Innovation Cell, NASSCOM 10,000 Startups, T-Hub, We-Hub, Vaave, India Network, Karo Startup, Startup News, and Tracxn, helping it become the biggest platform for startups.
