    • Service 20. Future of VC in India

  • Industry has not grown to meet needs of a variety of entrepreneurs
  • Too much money chasing too fewprojects, in select industries, not in the majority
  • Move towards consortium financing, risks spread for a smaller piece of pie
  • Many have dropped out and many coming in - churn is there, as players are to get established 21. Future of VC in India

  • Potential is there, needs to be tapped
  • Lack of appropriately trained persons to manage funds
  • General public, including others like bank staff, CAs, legal advisors etc. not completely aware of finer points of such funding
  • The entrepreneurial ecosystem is yet to develop, of course some cities like Bangalore are slowly having a variety of experts in this space 22. Future VCs in India

  • There are limited takers for smaller projects
  • Real early stage, high growth, high risk projects, finding it difficult to raise funding
  • There are issues of exit and other related issues 23. Future VCs in India

  • This includes industry groups, academic institutions and other groups 24. Evolving scenario

  • Review of projects includes going back to cash flow
  • Gap between PAT and free cash flow analysed
  • Detailed due diligence review
  • Business perspective and not audit perspective
  • Looking at the India + global story 25. Evolving scenario

  • Are we going to see more global Indian brands in the future?
  • Will VCs help us create these brands?
  • Time will tell
