International VCs Look To India For Opportunities

In order to tap the growing Asian market, several funds targeting the startups in the South East Asian region have been launched.

Most recently, US-based alternative asset company TPG announced the final close of its Asian focused private equity fund, TPG Capital Asia VII fund, after raising  $4.6 Bn in commitments.

US-based alternative investment manager, Proterra Investment Partners is also planning to launch an Asia-focused fund between $700 Mn – $800 Mn in 2019 to invest in the food and agriculture markets.

Most recently, US-based Microsoft’s corporate venture fund M12 forayed into the Indian market after investing $10 Mn in healthcare data analytics startup Innovaccer.

Another interesting aspect is the growing of investment by the Indian entrepreneurs back into the ecosystem.

Several prominent entrepreneurs such as Binny Bansal, Deep Kalra of Makemytrip, Naukri.com’s Sanjeev Bikchandani, TaxiForSure co-founder Aprameya Radhakishna have invested in venture capital funds in the last year.

Last month, Binny Bansal-backed early-stage venture capital fund 021 Capital had made its first close of $32 Mn.

Following his exit from Flipkart, Bansal along with former McKinsey consultant Saikiran Krishnamurthy, launched a Bengaluru-based tech company named as XTo10X Technologies in December 2018. The new venture will be offering technology tools, learning and consulting services to growth-stage startups which are looking to scale up.
