    New Silk Route is a leading Asia-focused growth capital firm founded in 2006 with $1.4 billion under management, focused on the Indian subcontinent, as well as other rapidly growing economies in Asia and the Middle East. New Silk Route's portfolio of investments includes Technology, Media & Telecom; Manufacturing; Financial Services; Consumer Services; and Infrastructure investments. NSR is currently investing across rapidly growing economies in Asia and the Middle East. While the fund has a strong focus on India, approximately a third of our fund will be allocated for non-India investments - with the target regions being other South Asian countries (Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka), as well as the Middle East and East Asia.
