We are here to help co-found businesses from their earliest stages. Be it an idea or a revenue generating startup, we want to be a part of it.

Other Requirements

Management TeamSuccessful businesses are often started by mature founders who have several years of work experience but do not conform to the status quo.
That’s why we are looking for mature professionals who have a knack for solving market failures and those who embody leadership and efficient problem-solving qualities.
The qualities that make a great entrepreneur are often present before they even start a business. The best businesses are founder-run, so Wamda X is looking to partner with these founders from the early days of starting up.
