Independence Day in India is a time of celebration, reflection, and unity. This year, the occasion took on a unique hue as Nikhil Kamath, unveiled an inspiring initiative. Kamath announced his intent to partner, assist, and fund small Indian brands. Through this initiative, Kamath aims to bolster homegrown businesses and promote a sense of patriotism among consumers.
Promoting Homegrown Brands: Nikhil Kamath’s patriotic initiative on Independence Day
Taking to his social media platforms, Nikhil Kamath asked his extensive follower base for recommendations of cool and undiscovered Indian brands. His intention was clear – to showcase the power of supporting local brands, even if they might be slightly less known than their foreign counterparts. In a tweet, Kamath stated, “Patriotism has many definitions. Mine today seems to be choosing Indian brands (owned and operated) over foreign ones, even if the counterpart is ‘slightly’ better.”
To all brand managers and advertisers reaching out for paid promotions, etc., I’m humbled but 100 per cent uninterested. Pls don’t spam me. If I ever share a brand going forward, it’s out of genuine love, not for payment. What’s the coolest undiscovered Indian #brand you know?…

His commitment was further evidenced when he was part of a three-person delegation, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, on a visit to the White House. A while before the visit, he also made headlines when he became not only just the 4th but also the youngest Indian ever to pledge a majority of his wealth towards charity with Bill and Melinda’s Gates Foundation. Kamath’s acumen for recognizing winning opportunities has been a cornerstone of his success. His investment philosophy extends to sectors like proptech and clean tech, emphasizing sustainability and the betterment of lives.
As part of his latest venture, Nikhil Kamath has co-founded the Gruhas Collective fund alongside Vijay Subramaniam and Abhijeet Pai. This fund has an initial corpus of Rs. 150 crores, and its vision is to substantially increase its scale in the future. The focus of the fund aligns seamlessly with Kamath’s core values – uplifting small independent consumer startups owned and operated within India. By investing in these businesses, Kamath and his partners are fostering an ecosystem of self-reliance and growth that aligns with the spirit of Independence Day.
