CaPatel – An Investment Firm with a Vision

One of the first South Asian founded investment firms in Chicago Founded by Anip Patel


CHICAGO, IL- One of the first South Asian founded investment firms in Chicago — CaPatel was recently launched. Founded by Anip Patel, a celebration ceremony was held to mark the opening at Grapes & Grains. The guest list included many prominent faces from the community.

CaPatel Investments, an early-stage investment firm, focuses on investing predominantly in companies that promote South Asian values. Founder Anip Patel says, “Many South Asian start-ups lack access to funding.” He also pointed out a stark truth — minority CEOs often find themselves facing discrimination, which negatively affects their businesses.

“With CaPatel Investments,” he says, “we plan to use our initial fund for two initiatives: a grant program for a company to get them on their feet, and investment opportunities for South Asian founded start-ups.”

The grant program allows up to $10,000 worth of funding for new companies to kick start their venture. Following the grant program, the investment opportunities allow companies to receive funding from $50,000-$500,000. Thus giving those with a vision a fair chance to realise their dreams.
