/ About


The investment methodology of Linus Capital fits the personality of its founder. The passion for investing of its founder is reflected in its portfolio: a mix of operating businesses and real-estate investments in USA and India. Diversification of our investments with a mix of operating businesses and real-estate, focus in India and USA presents us multiple investment opportunities and take advantage of market cycles in both countries

Linus Capital had brought Private Equity type value creation methodologies to its real-estate investments in India in Yr.2005. Linus Capital made the first investment in a social networking platform in India in Yr. 2006, much before the world had realized India's internet potential

Linus Capital believes it has to bring something unique to the table other than capital. In addition to financial engineering, we time our investments to take advantage of business cycles, develop new corporate strategies, pursue mergers and divestitures and relentlessly fine tune operations of invested businesses

Linus Capital radically transforms invested businesses by expanding product/service lines; overhaul of underperforming business units and reshape businesses that create lasting improvements while generating incremental cash-flows

When there are thousands of sources of pure capital, we understand we have to offer something extra to our investments. The firm has seeded new investments, partnered with local governments and doubled down investments with primary focus of maximizing potential of our portfolio companies

Since 2004, our real-estate investments have produced an average return of 62% across both USA and India. Our great successes also include exiting investments with 7 times invested capital and the value of another investment multiplied by 10 times since initial investment made once we applied our private equity value creation model
