The firm is ready to target $120m for the fund according to AVCJ, which spoke to founder and managing director Sandeep Aneia.

He said the Silicon Valley presence was designed to help its Indian companies access innovative technology.

The firm’s debut vehicle collected $98m through a final close in May 2009.

Last year Kaizen led a $4m investment in India-based online learning platform WizIQ.

German media company Bertelsmann also participated in the investment round.
