Good episode? Give it some love!
2019 was a record-breaking one for Indian startups. Across sectors, companies raised more than $4 billion in venture capital last year. In fact, the first three quarters of 2019 alone witnessed the emergence of eight new unicorns (valuation > $ 1billion). So, in this episode, we take a close look at the world of venture capital which invests risk capital in these companies. To discuss this, we have Kushal Bhagia (@kushalbhagia), CEO of Firstcheque, an early-stage VC firm. We talk about:
How a VC firm works - who invests in a VC firm, how do they make money, and how do employees of VC firms make money.
What kind of business should look for VC money?
Why do VC firms invest in such hugely loss-making startups?
There is a critique of Indian VC space that most VCs have not been entrepreneurs. Is that a fair criticism? What are the consequences in India? Is it changing?
How is the startup scene in India changing?
