Its extraordinary history is intimately tied to its geography. A meeting ground between the East and the West, it has been invader’s paradise. In the last one and half decades, India has proved itself as a destination for Information Technology (IT) and Business Process Outsourcing (BPO). India is also fast emerging as a major center for cutting-edge research and development (R&D) projects for global multinational companies. Lot of activities are happening in India in various sectors such as IT, BPO, Knowledge Process Outsourcing (KPO), Semiconductors, Biotechnology, Textiles, Manufacturing, and Engineering recently. This study is an attempt to explore the trends and developments in Venture Capital financing in India through an in‐depth analysis of these investments over the last 5 years (2005‐2009).

INTRODUCTION The Venture capital sector is the most vibrant industry in the financial market today. Venture capital is money provided by professionals who invest alongside management in young, rapidly growing companies that have the potential to develop into significant economic contributors. Venture capital is an important source of equity for start-up companies. Venture capital can be visualized as “your ideas and our money” concept of developing business. Venture capitalists are people who pool financial resources from high networth individuals, corporates, pension funds, insurance companies, etc. to invest in high risk - high return ventures that are unable to source funds from regular channels like banks and capital markets. The venture capital industry in India has really taken off in. Venture capitalists not only provide monetary resources but also help the entrepreneur with guidance in formalizing his ideas into a viable business venture. Five critical success factors have been identified for the growth of VC in India, namely: Sri Krishna International Research & Educational Consortium  http://www.skirec.com

It would also imply that the VC would essentially act as a “bank” that provides money in exchange for equity. the disadvantages of such a maniacal focus on profitability include (a) the possibility that an Indian start-up may not able to grow very quickly or realize its full potential and (b) the possibility of an Indian start-up being upstaged by some other firm somewhere else in the world. the reasons for making their company profitable quickly include: (a) the scarcity of available venture capital in India so far. etc. which are usually product-based and are usually expecting 2-3 stages of investment. we believe the VCs should not look at funding Indian companies in distinct stages (i.

We also believe that simply directing the Indian entrepreneurs to implement processes during monthly or quarterly board meetings may prove to be futile because many entrepreneurs might not know how to execute on these instructions. we believe that in some cases the VCs may even have to go to the extreme of closing contracts and bringing in the revenue on behalf of a start-up rather than simply “opening doors” by providing the contacts in their “Rolodex. finding and retaining the ‘right talent’ has become an issue not only in marketing.

INDIAN ENTREPRENEURS ARE HESITANT TO GIVE UP CONTROL Indian entrepreneurs are usually hesitant about giving up control. This problem is further exacerbated because the Indian economy has been growing at 8% and most start-ups have to compete for talent not only with other companies who are exporting similar or dissimilar products and services but also with many Indian domestic companies.
