Venture Scale Growth Without Venture Capital

During this week’s roundtable, Ricky Joshi, Co-founder at Saatva, shared the story of growing his company from 0 to over $150 million in seven years. This is pretty much venture scale growth. The best part of the story is that the company has raised no VC money at all. Wonderful conversation about a capital-efficient, deeply disciplined company.

You can listen to the recording of this roundtable here:


As for the pitches, Victor Lim from Phoenix, Arizona, pitched Auxo, a professional networks focused on empowering small businesses with content marketing. There are some strategic shifts necessary to make this work.


Next, Susobhan Dey from Bangalore, India, pitched HamaCare, a network of doctors and patients who want to interact through video/phone, and are empowered by a predictive analytics engine that looks at their test data and predicts future health problems. Very promising company!
