We Deal With It
Yesterday's Values, Tomorrow's Deal Making Skills
The RainMaker Group is founded on the premise that India’s new breed of entrepreneurs and companies require a new breed of dealmakers. We believe that delivering tangible value in today’s milieu stems from fusing the reach and enterprise of a top flight investment bank with the integrity and domain depth of an in-house corporate development team. We have worked diligently to institutionalise this approach.
The RainMaker Group works with a limited set of market leading companies backed by Tier 1 VCs, which come to us through strong relationships or credible references. Unlike traditional investment banks with a transactional approach to business, we partner clients through their lifecycle- for months and years before and after the champagne has been popped for a successful deal closure. This helps us cultivate deep domain knowledge as well as infuse much needed creativity and meticulousness into deal making.
Despite our short history, leading global counterparties have found comfort in having us on the other side of the table – because they know that our transactions are preceded by thorough client diligence and research.
