Nexus Venture Partners has closed its seventh fund of a $700-million corpus, which will focus on investing in India and US-based startups.

Nexus Venture VII will back startups in the fintech, consumer, SaaS, and artificial intelligence sectors, the company said in a blog post. The new fund will take its assets under management to $2 billion.

Nexus Venture Partners, founded in 2006 by Suvir Sujan, Sandeep Singhal and Naren Gupta, is one of the earliest homegrown venture capital firms to back entrepreneurs in India and the US. The fund is the second biggest capital fund raised in a year, only after Sequoia's $2.85-billion fund mid last year.
