“Try not to become a person of success, but rather try to become a person of value.”


Varun Datta is a seasoned venture capitalist and investor who funds numerous industries globally. He is a well-known businessman who founded Truth Ventures, a venture capital company that makes investments in startups.

Below is an account of some interactions related to his business and his success.


Q. What are the sectors you prefer to invest in and why? What criteria do you use to make such decisions?

My top investment picks include the healthcare industry, holistic wellness, the entertainment industry, OTT platforms, content creation, and blockchain technology.

I have been looking forward to modifying the healthcare system after witnessing people struggle because there aren’t enough satisfactory facilities.


So now, along with funding healthcare, I also advocate for holistic health. Again, I also want to promote legal marijuana in the USA due to its multiple health advantages. If I have the resources to do something, why not put them to good use?

As a result of the new media technology,  the entertainment sector has undergone a change too. The digital record keeping and money management system has also changed.

There are new platforms that are developing, like OTT and social media. Content creation is growing along with that.

Besides, with digitalization, blockchain technology is gaining popularity. Transactions are recorded in a digital ledger using this technology. It secures and safeguards digital assets. Why would a sensible man miss the golden opportunity of funding these sectors?

I make investments in growing companies, early- to middle-stage companies, and seed-stage start-ups that I feel have a good possibility of growing and expanding.

Besides, I offer my mentorship and counsel to these businesses.

Q.  What is your aim behind making these investments? Where do you see yourself in the future?

I started as an ordinary entrepreneur. At first. As I continued to gain knowledge from my experiences, I progressively turned to investing.

I was born in India and I’m based in the UK. I started early and young and therefore I have ample belief in the power of the youth. 

I wish to encourage young minds to come up with fresh, and innovative ideas. I value cooperation and make efforts to create an environment where creativity can flourish.

I am working hard to grow my business into a big enterprise that adds value to the lives of people.

I constantly put the needs of the target audience above my own financial gains. However, my expertise, undying patience, and tenacious attitude help me achieve both together. And, I’m grateful for everything.
