Do you know Favcy's story?
Dear Reader, do you know Favcy's story?
We are still reeling from excitement after YourStory's feature article on Favcy Venture Builders & 1stCheque! Read the article here!
Often ideas that seem the hardest to execute turn out to be ventures that scale dizzying heights. How we came about to be as a venture building firm is a story that surprises most!
The idea behind Favcy Venture Builders first came about when our Founding Partner, Pranav Chaturvedi identified the budding problem of Founders burning through investors' money with lightning speed due to lack of awareness about markets and the ecosystem. Another stumbling block most Founders seemed to be hitting was the issue of digitizing their ventures!
The solution to it all was not an Incubator, or an Accelerator! It was Favcy Venture Builders! A firm on a mission to help non-tech entrepreneurs avoid digital wastage!
To quote our Founding Partner, Pranav Chaturvedi
"When I heard myself say in 2019, like a General of a seemingly tired battalion, that our pivot to startup venture building could be built purely on operational strength and without investing cash,
.. I laughed at myself!"
But there were people who believed in this idea that would have seemed inconceivable to most! Soon, the co-founding trio turned into a solid team of 6. A humble team of colleagues turned into a workforce of 45 + dedicated people!
1stCheque came into existence, where, through Favcy's Venture Building, investors can get access to early-stage startups and pre-vetted, risk-mitigated deals that are backed by a Venture Builder!
From 1stCheque by Favcy and Openbook VC to Ideas Not Built Yet, growth scaled, new ideas took flight and Favcy grew into the commendable entity it is today! It is quite the feat.
We thought of sharing a piece from our journey with you to take you to our roots, so that our dedicated investors know where we come from and what forms our core beliefs! As always, we are thankful for your trust and support!
To shed more light on the venture building theme of this edition, in the Angel Bytes section, we bring to you an interesting conversation between our Founding Partner, Pranav Chaturvedi and Saurabh Nanda from 'Such Conversations Matter' as they talk about the Venture Building Landscape in India.
In this week’s CurrentOpenDeals section we present to you *drumrolls* -CompassTot, a platform at the product stage which enables parents to build a solid foundation for their children aged 2-6 years through personalized fun activities in a byte-sized format.

We are delighted to inform that we bring this opportunity to you at its 2nd Cheque because the entire 1stCheque round got subscribed to before we even had the chance to organize an Opening Day with the Founder!
Here's what Ajay Dadheech, an investor in CompassTot, has to say about the stellar opportunity -
In 2022 the estimated size of the Early Child Care and Education market in India stands at US$ 80Bn.
