The Chennai Angels (TCA) is an Angel Investment Group that funds Indian startups. TCA's network consists of elite leaders that have successfully built, run and in many cases exited enterprises across multiple domains and industries.
TCA funds scalable startups that have gained market traction and are in the early revenue stage; provided they solve a critical problem for consumers or businesses, using a unique solution.
As of today, TCA has invested over INR 110 Cr across 60+ Indian Start-ups.
Aspiring entrepreneurs with innovative business ideas often fumble to translate thoughts into commercially viable ventures. These teething troubles could be attributed to inadequate awareness in taking ideas forward or paucity of funds. In an effort to help these young minds, a group of prominent successful entrepreneurs came forward to form a consortium called The Chennai Entrepreneurship Trust Fund in Nov 2007, which is now The Chennai Angels (TCA).
