Davesh founded CDM Capital in 2022. He began his investing career more than 12 years ago after joining Sabre Capital, a mid-market PE fund focused on financial services and healthcare sectors. Over the years, Davesh had invested in 15+ companies from seed stage to late stage. In between he also founded a health-tech company called Juno Clinic, and understands that being a founder of a startup can be hard.
Davesh has supported multiple companies that have either already reached successful outcomes or are in path to achieve including RG Stone, Card91, Medfin, Whizleague, FunctionUp, FoodStrong, etc. The founders of his most successful companies had one thing in common: conviction and a clear vision for their business.
Davesh graduated from Kurukshetra University with B.Tech in Computer Science and completed his MBA from National University of Singapore Business School.

We have been investing over 12 years now across different stages from seed to IPO. Meet few of our Past Investments, we either made at our previous jobs or in personal capacity
With a diversified pool of investments, you may be wondering about how we invest. Well to be fair, we keep it simple.
CDM Capital is an early-stage venture firm, which is currently investing out of its fund CDM Capital Fund 1 at seed/pre-Series A stage. We are easy and flexible; we can write the first cheque or be the lead investor or happy to follow alongside other good funds.
We invest in technology startups, which are solving large market problems and are run by founders with conviction. We believe that conviction is contagious. We are sector agnostic but with bias towards fintech, health-tech and SaaS businesses.
Our sweet spot is $0.5 mn but then with our fantastic LPs base, who are keen to co-invest, we have the ability to write much bigger cheques.
We have been entrepreneurs in the past, and understand that at times entrepreneurship can be a tough lonely journey. Our support stays with the founding team especially during the tough times. As bigger investors join the company, we are very comfortable stepping back to make room. While we are in this business to to make return, but our approach is not a transactional approach.
