Note from Aliasger Yakub Rampurwala

Thesis:
Vastly Valuable Ventures (VVV) invests in fabulous founders – they make or break a business. VVV looks for hustlers with perseverance.
VVV seeks outs defensible ideas, in large markets, that have the potential to become home runs (>100x outcomes).
VVV is focused on Pre-Seed to Series A stage technology companies with a primary focus on emerging markets (70-80%: Middle East & Africa; 10-20%: LatAm; 10-20%: Others (Pakistan, Bangladesh, India); Selectively consider other geographies). Selectively, VVV may consider post-Series A companies and companies in other geographies. VVV is sector agnostic with a tilt to FinTech, Marketplaces, InsurTech, DeepTech, SaaS, RegTech, Consumer, DeFi, Mobility and FOW
VVV predominantly invests alongside other reputable global investors. VVV continues to remain extremely selective and turns down majority of its deal flow in order to get to those propositions which can create outsized returns for our investors. On average, VVV participates in <1% of the deals originated, that make it through the stringent screening and diligence process.
