Arjun further informed that the market’s top 50 million is globally homogeneous in behavior, preferences, etc. The sectors for the next 350 million have not been defined clearly as of now.

Seemingly, the fund for Good Capital will be overseen by the investment committee that includes Sanjay Kapoor, former Airtel CEO and is now working as a senior advisor at BCG; Kashyap Deorah, founder of HyperTrack and Trifecta Capital founder Rahul Khanna.
