Bajaj was quoted as saying that the firm will expect to see, “50% higher exit than the previous 7x, when we exit Cloudnine completely.” Matrix Partners India’s first fund has seen close to 15 profitable exits according to Bajaj and sources VC investment deal tracking sources indicate Matrix has made10 exits since 2015.
