Since 2000, the Foresight Group has been focusing on India’s long term growth opportunities through exports, manufacturing and retail.

India benefits from strong growth and a young, highly educated population that can sustain that growth. The group is now looking to invest in digital start-ups and through these strategic investments contribute towards India’s Atmanirbhar program.

Manufacturing

Our Founder Dr Ravi K Mehrotra always had his heart set on looking at growth opportunities for the group in sectors which are diverse but are aligned to India’s long term economic growth.

GTFC represents the strength of Foresight Group’s diversification strategy; in 1990s he identified the footwear manufacturing as one sector where investment and efforts in developing the industry will create employment opportunities and help improve India’s share of exports.

Two decades later we are proud of the decision as GTFC, the group’s footwear manufacturing company, has grown from strength to strength and has the market leader position in its sector in India.

Branded Retail

Dr Mehrotra’s conviction and deep belief in India’s long-term dynamic economic growth inspired the group’s research team to look for business opportunities that can connect the Foresight group with the emerging consumer markets in India.

In 2008, the group set up a joint venture with UK’s leading footwear retailers Pavers Limited to develop a retail brand called Pavers England. In 2012, Pavers England received India’s #1 single brand FDI approval and has since reached newer heights.

Tech Start-ups in India

After making the most of India’s growth avenues, manufacturing and retail, the group is now ready to make strategic investments in technology start-ups India. A large pool of young intellect, India is entering an era of digital transformation in sectors like education, healthcare and fintech. Foresight Private Equity is poised to actively engage with technology start-ups in India and provide financial support to its entrepreneurs..

This strategic investment is in alignment with our founder’s directive of preparing the group to be cash positive, profitable and relevant to the society in our centenary year 2084.
