Bengaluru, NFAPost: California-headquartered early-stage VC company CerraCap and Exfinity together for new investments which are poised to unleash the next wave of Enterprise Artificial Intelligence and Digital Disruption.
Their core investment will focus on Cyber Security, Health Tech, Logistics, Document Intelligence, Computer Vision, and Machine Learning which includes deep learning and underpins many recent advances in other AI technologies. The CerraCap-Exfinity partnership is a powerful combination.
According to Arvian Research, the decision of Exfinity to align with CerraCap is primarily for investing in US-based startup companies. “Exfinity had already made up its mind to come up with a rupee and dollar-denominated third fund for this investment,” stated Arvian Research.
CerraCap Ventures CEO and Founder Saurabh Ranjan said with Exfinity’s understanding of complex digital product interactions, its deep engineering expertise and agile collaborative approach uniquely compliments how CerraCap operates.

Enterprise startups can leverage the CerraCap – Exfinity partnership to create frugal but cutting-edge innovation in India and take products to market in the US.
