Venture capitalists, private equities bullish on India – Feedback

Venture capitalists and private equities are bullish on long-term projects in India from investment-intensive power generating plants to financing opportunities in the fast expanding network of grassroots shops.

“The Indian market is going to be a second or third largest Venture capitalist (VC) markets in the world,” said Sid Talwar, a partner at Lightbox, which has invested USD 50 million in 2015 of the USD 200 million planned for India. “We will continue to see VC investments in the range of USD 7-USD 10 billion a year in India,” he estimated, pointing out that India received USD 7 billion VC funds last year, USD 6.5 billion of which came from overseas investors. India also topped as the receiver of private equities (PE) funding, beating China for the first time last year, added Anand Prakash, managing director at ACP Climate Partners, a PE which made USD 20 million commitment in cold-chain and logistics company ColdEX in March this year.
