Venture capital investing We have done an analysis of the current trends in venture capital investing in India. We have used data published by the firm venture intelligence.com Let us look at key highlights: 1. In July 2016 venture capital investors funded 49 deals worth US 330 million to Indian startups. 2. This is the second highest in 2016 both in terms of volume no. of deals and value. 3. 9 out of the 49 deals were each worth US 10 million or more. 4. This figure is just marginally lower than the high of 10 such deals in January 2016 5. During July 2016 the 3 largest deals were: the US 30 Million Series D round raised by e-jeweler Bluestone the US 20 Million Series B attracted by SME financier Lending kart and the US 15 Million Series A round for preventive healthcare firm Cure fit. 6. From a sectoral point of view investors also chose to back more companies in the consumer focused themes - compared to the focus on B2B business to business as well as Enterprise Software and Education sectors in 2015

7. When one adds the US 82 million investment in 15+ years old online event ticketing firm Bookmyshow.com which also chalked up US-based Growth Capital focused Stripes Groups first India deal were to be added then the return of interest to consumer targeting companies gets even more pronounced. 8. The list of VC investors who were active in July was quite diverse as well and included new entrants as well as the traditional investors viz Family Offices 9. From a country of origin point of view the India-focused investments arm of Germany-headquartered Bertelsmann led the two of the three largest VC investments - Lending kart and the 17 Million Series B round for hotels aggregator Treebo.

13. Let us look at some of the prominent exits in July 2016 Travel firm Yatra Onlines listing on NASDAQ - via a US 218 Million Reverse merger with a Blank Cheque or SPAC firm - represented the first exit for VC investors in India through this route. Yatras investors - including Norwest Reliance Venture and Capital18 starting in 2006 Intel Capital 2008 and Valiant Capital 2011 and IDG Ventures India Vertex and Rajasthan VC 2015 - had invested over US 100 million in the company. The US 70 million acquisition of Jabong.com by fellow fashion e-tailer Myntra and the quick flips of HR tech firm Hiree into Quikr and mobile payments firm Momoe into ShopClues into Quikr helped increase the exit activity. Both Hiree and Momoe had raised their first VC investment less than two years ago and counted IDG Ventures India as a common investor. 14. Entrepreneur VC of the Month: Venture Intelligences Entrepreneur of the Month title went to Myntra Founder Mukesh Bansal for taking the entrepreneurial plunge all over again and attracting all three early VC backers of Myntra - Accel India Kalaari Capital and IDG Ventures India - to his new venture Curefit in one of the largest first round investments attracted by any Indian startup. 15. Clearly green shoots are emerging on the liquidity front as venture capital firms are pumping in more cash. This marks a return of confidence in the Indian start- up ecosystem.
