The last fund invested in 13 start-ups including Playshifu, an AR based interactive educational toys and games company; Pixxel, a space technology company and Euler Motors, an automotive technology start-up focused on commercial electric vehicles (EVs).

Riverwalk's portfolio includes AI based contract automation startup Spotdraft; ayurveda platform The Ayurveda Experience; community and commerce platform for parents Mylo; and housing finance platform Homeville.
