Perspectives from an Indian VC

About

From s/w coding to consulting to investment banking and now PE/VC, I have done it all. But, VC is where my heart is coz it involves the three things that really interest me – technology, finance and entrepreneurship. If you are an entrepreneur or a company that is in need of funding, I would love to hear from you. But, make sure you have an idea about our funds and investment focus first.

    Hi Arun,

    we are group of freinds hailing from Bihar..Looking forward to start fruit processing unit in Bihar..some of us have land as well as are in cultivation of litchi..do u funds these kind of venture???

  5. Dear Mr. Arun,
    A Very Happy & Propserous New Year.
    Ours is a 37 year young technology company in custom design electronic systems for Nuclear, Defence and Electric utilities, of two IIT’ans (age 64 & 54). We averaged Rs 4.5 crs T/o in the last three years, 07-08 would be around Rs 2 to 2.5 crs, and our expansion plan based on the 123 Deal has gone awry. We had all along concentrated on custom design priding in import substitution and technological challenge in embedded systems. We have no major product stream. We have incurred debt(having acquired a sick electronic unit at Navimumbai from a term loan institution apart from Working capital from a nationalised bank both totalling Rs 4.5 crs and some unsecurd loans). We have exhausted our way of looking in to freeing the value of the property of the navimumbai unit which is around Rs 8.0 crs – market value, through Loan against property, which are not viable enough for us to take it. We were suggested to get in touch with pvt equity funds and I came across your link in the google search. I am not sure if you could suggest any possible course of action. We are good technically, but need support in marketing, finance. We are currently trying to change our focus from custom design to products and small systems, for which we need funds both for current needs and future growth. We are lookingg for equity. You also could be advising clients who are looking for a tie up with an electronics company in India. Can we look for a tie up with any of them with infusion of equity?
    With Best Regards,
    Ramasubramanyan.

    Hi Arun ,

    I am a s/w engg turned MBA(+CFA L1)and would be joining an indian bank in their Project Finance group.My basic interest is towards PE/VC roles.Like you – technology, finance and entrepreneurship really interest me.Can you please enlighten me on the best route that i can take for PE/VC roles.I saw your background “From s/w coding to consulting to investment banking and now PE/VC” and simply could not stop myself from asking this question to you.

    Apologies for not asking something related to ‘need of funding ‘which to me is the main motivation behind creating this space.

    Best Regards,
    Anupam

    As you’d appreciate PE is a hard place to break into and it is very difficult for me to suggest any one way of making it. For different people, it’s worked differently. While a majority of the PE professionals have some sort of a finance background (read Investment Banking), there is also an almost equal no from consulting and industry backgrounds. There is no one path to this place and I guess it will be fair to say that at some point, you also need to get lucky. (Don’t mean to sound vain about this, just stating the reality). So, I’ll find it hard to suggest what you need to do to get into PE apart from saying maybe try getting into IB or consulting and hope u make it some day.
