About Kohli Ventures
Since 2006 Kohli Ventures has transacted a major investment into a leading European robotics-focused venture studio. We have made Europe’s largest ever esports investment. We have funded an M&A roll-up in the US healthcare sector. We have acquired B2C e-commerce provider dynacart and turned it into a global player. We have backed a renewable off-grid energy company providing devolved power generation to thousands homes. And we have made private market investments into hyper-growth companies SpaceX and PrimaryWave.
The genesis of Kohli Ventures is a conglomeration of companies specialising in online payments and associated technologies which were founded by Tej Kohli in 1999 and then sold in a series of high-value trade sales. Following this major liquidity event, Tej Kohli established three organizations:
1. The Zibel Real Estate portfolio was established to invest in real estate opportunities.
2. The Tej Kohli Foundation and the Tej Kohli & Ruit Foundation were established for philanthropy.
3. Kohli Ventures was established as a vehicle for Tej Kohli to invest in high-growth ventures.
