We started Unshackled Ventures in 2014 with a simple entrepreneurial vision - help immigrant founded startups succeed faster.
As Manan Mehta, a first generation American and a first generation Nitin Pachisia, an immigrant, first crossed paths our pathways first crossed at a startup in 2010. Through our personal entrepreneurial experiences, we saw that our diverse backgrounds led to incredible and innovative thinking. As we worked with some the most successful VCs, we also understood the best partners provide much more than capital - they help alleviate time consuming distractions and obstacles. This is especially needed for early-stage, immigrant founded startups. By bringing together immigration support and venture resources we knew we could support some of the most brilliant minds in America succeed faster.
