Investments in India’s ‘speedy’ market are paying off: QandA with Galina Chifina of RTP Global

Moscow-headquartered venture capital firm RTP Global, which was founded by Russian entrepreneur and investor Leonid Boguslavsky, has raised USD 650 million after exhausting its second global fund of USD 200 million in 34 companies across the US, Europe, India, and Southeast Asia.
The firm will invest USD 650 million in these four geographies, with about one-third of the fund allocated for early-stage to Series B technology companies from India and Southeast Asia.
RTP started developing a portfolio in India in 2011, targeting startups in e-commerce, food delivery, fintech, ed-tech, telemedecine, agritech, and mobile gaming. Then, last year, it made one investment in Vietnam and two in Singapore.
KrASIA got in touch with Galina Chifina, partner and investment advisor at RTP Global, to learn about the firm’s strategy in these two regions.
Chifina, whose plans to relocate to RTP’s new office in Singapore this year have been delayed due to the pandemic, said she will move to the city-state by early 2021.
