The Kohli Ventures Story
The genesis of Kohli Ventures is a conglomeration of companies specialising in online technologies which were founded and then sold by Tej Kohli in a series of high-value trade sales in 2006. This major liquidity event led Tej Kohli to establish three organizations: The Zibel Real Estate portfolio was established to invest in real estate opportunities. The Tej Kohli Foundation was established to instigate and fund grassroots charitable projects. And Kohli Ventures was established to invest in technology ventures that could offer investment return plus social impact.
Since 2006 we have transacted major investments in a leading European robotics-focused venture studio. We have made one of Europe’s largest esports investments. We have funded an M&A roll-up in the US healthcare sector. We have acquired and turned around a leading B2C e-commerce provider. We have backed a renewable off-grid energy company providing power generation to thousands of poor homes. And we have led the buyout and turnaround of a B2B SaaS platform technology provider that employs over 300 software developers across eight countries.
The Six D’s of Exponential Growth
We have built our investment philosophy around the ‘Six D’s Of Exponential Growth’ and we welcome pitch deck submissions that are mapped against the Six D’s:
Our Four Key Area Of Focus
1) Unlocking The Global AI Economy
Tej Kohli is a vocal advocate of the potential for artificial intelligence to become omnipresent in every segment of economic activity, so Kohli Ventures has committed over $100m of investment into unlocking and mastering the technologies of the AI revolution.
Tej Kohli has previously predicted that the global AI economy could be worth $150 trillion, so Kohli Ventures seeks to invest in new and novel frontier technologies that can leverage from the exponential growth of artificial intelligence whilst also offering new opportunities to solve human challenges.
2) Transformative Biotechnology
The status of Kohli Ventures as an investor of liquid capital on behalf of Tej Kohli and the Kohli family is reflected in a risk appetite to back biotech ventures for whom institutional capital sources are inaccessible. Kohli Ventures seeks to back biotech ventures that can demonstrate a clear pathway to commercial viability whilst also delivering positive human impact.
We are currently invested in a portfolio of biotech ventures and associated intellectual property within the fields of regenerative medicine, bio synthetics, fluid replacement, and diagnostics. We are also the lead backer of Detraxi, a US-based biotechnology company whose proprietary solution has completed trials at Johns Hopkins University.
Leading The Esports Megatrend
Tej Kohli is Europe’s biggest individual investor into eSports and Kohli Ventures is building one of the world’s first billion-dollar esports teams. eSports has emerged as a multi-billion-dollar global industry with estimated global audiences of between 300 and 700 million.
We anticipate the growth and consolidation of the global eSports ecosystem, so we seek to invest in eSports ventures that can synergise with the Tej Kohli portfolio without creating conflicts of interest.
4) Rebuilding People & Communities
Tej Kohli has committed to allocating a proportion of the profits from Kohli Ventures into the not-for-profit Tej Kohli Foundation and also the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation, a restricted fund operating under the auspices of Prism the Gift Fund, registered UK charity number 1099682.
Tej Kohli regularly shares insights about the achievements of these foundation’s in his #TejTalks blog, as well as on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. In 2020 Tej Kohli released ‘Rebuilding You: The Philanthropy Handbook’ as a guide for wealth creators who are seeking to use their wealth to help others.
