With 1.3 billion people and an increasingly connected population, tech startups in India have attracted plenty of investor attention in the last few years, from foreign hedge funds to homegrown angel investors. 2016 saw a record for deals to private tech companies in the country.

We used CB Insights data to identify the country’s most active tech investors from 2012 to 2017 year-to-date (YTD) and the companies that they’ve invested in. With investments into 76 companies since 2012, Blume Ventures was the most active investor in the Indian tech ecosystem.

Companies are listed in order of the highest total funding they’ve raised.

Indian Angel Network came in second, investing in 64 companies. Angel groups, which bring together a network of angel investors, were some of the most active investors in India. The Mumbai Angels Network came in fifth, closing deals to 48 companies.

Two out of the top ten most active investors were foreign firms. New York-based hedge fund Tiger Global Management invested in 36 companies. SAIF Partners, headquartered in Hong Kong, invested in 35 Indian companies since 2012.

The size of the rounds that these investors participated in varied widely, with the angel networks closing the smallest deals. The two largest rounds that the Indian Angel Network participated in were both for $2M in 2016. The first was in women’s fashion site FabAlley’s Series A and the second in Uniphore’s Series B.
