Startups should be awake now and find a way to grab the attention of this investor. A sum of $ 50 million USD which is up to Rs 352 crore capital funds will be provided by Akatsuki Entertainment Technology. The company is looking for those startups that are providing content in gaming, vernacular languages, entertainment and media in Asia's third-largest economy. It is also investing in other regions like the US and Japan.

The firm is also working with Accel Partners and Blume Ventures. These two are considered to be the leading VC firms that are operating in the country.
