We aim to get our founders to generate $10M ARR. And we leave no stone unturned until this milestone is reached.
We specialize in being the first B2B SaaS investment, from pre-product to pre-idea stages. Our strength is helping founders explore problem statements with potential customers. We also invest in for companies with $1-3M ARR and be like GTM partners to the entrepreneurs, helping them reach $10M ARR.
Our investment approach is first-principled rather than being influenced by FOMO. We prioritize making independent decisions and avoid being influenced by other investors in the round. Additionally, we stay away from founders who think name-dropping other investors would persuade us to invest in them.
SaaS playbooks are often tribal knowledge, so we democratise them for our portfolio companies.
We help our portfolio put up booths or sponsor third party events
We aim to provide 100 customer intros to our portfolio in the first 2-3 years of our partnership
We help host events, roundtables and dinners for your current customers to network with potential customers.
We assist in creating a content engine fueled by customer references, essential for word-of-mouth marketing.
Once the $10M ARR milestone is reached, we assist in bringing on partners who will help scale the business further

Partnering with Neon has been a transformative experience for SpotDraft. As owner operators, they tackle key challenges that other investors overlook. They are deeply involved in our business, from connecting us with talent and customers to aligning with our long-term vision. They joined us pre PMF and continue to support our rapid scaling.

As a startup founder, I'm grateful to Sid and the Neon Fund team for their unwavering support during our early stages. They provided us with capital and became our guides, champions, and partners. Neon Fund is not just a believer, but a truly great partner. Their investment goes beyond money—it's an investment in our potential, vision, and journey.

Siddhartha and the team have been incredibly helpful. As former founders themselves, they understand the challenges and support that founders need. Neon's process is quick and fair, and they were open to suggestions when we had to push back on certain matters. Overall, they are a friendly fund that I highly recommend to all startups.

Neon Fund has been extremely helpful to us early stages. Siddhartha works closely with us, providing insights, guidance, and unwavering conviction. Their commitment to understanding and nurturing our vision is outstanding, offering tailored support and resources. We have a strong working relationship and consider them not just partners but friends.
We have had a great experience since then. Sid is always there to help us either on hiring or GTM or any other doubt under the sun. He is always thoughtful, proactive and founder first. Other partners are equally supportive in opening their networks to us whether it be for customers or investors. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with them in the last few months.
