    Angel Investing in Indian Startups 2020

    Angel Investing in Indian Startups 2020

    This week on InvestStream, I talk with Miten Sampat, Chief Strategy Officer at Times Internet (the largest media company in India) and Sonali Thapar, Director of TCAP Investments, a family office based in India. Listen to insights on how the market is changing, what angel investors and other early stage investors should be thinking about and doing during the global rebalancing.

    Angel investing in Indian startups has been growing rapidly over the last 5 years. The risk capital these individuals, family offices and angel networks provide, has been invaluable to countless startups in India.

    However, with the COViD-19 lockdowns across the globe, startups have faced immense pressure from existing investors, primarily, because many expect the pace of new investments and the amount of money being raised as well as the valuations the money is being raised at to fall, perhaps for quite some time.

    Miten has been an active angel investor in the US and India for many years as well as being an active corporate VC at Times.

    Sonali is responsible for managing the investment portfolio of TCAP, her family office. In addition to investing in startups, TCAP also invests in real estate, debt and equity.

    Why should founders update [all of] their investors regularly?

    Why should founders update [all of] their investors regularly?

    VCs and angel investors take risks when they invest money into a startup. Most VCs (but not all) get access to updates through "information rights", at least until a certain point in time. However, angels don't always have a legal right to updates about how a company is doing.  

    On this episode of InvestStream, the founders or Workomo and PaperStreet are going to join Pankaj to discuss how and why it's in the founders' best interests to keep all of their investors regularly updated about what's happening with the startup they invested in (with all of the good, bad and ugly).

    Why Become an Angel Investor?

    Why Become an Angel Investor?

    Angel investing into startups has risen significantly over the last decade. Part of the increase in angel investing has been because of the availability of information via blogs and news platforms like TechCrunch, VentureBeat, etc. but also because of investing platforms like AngelList. In addition, early successes have yielded a class of angel called the "Super Angel".  Ever thought about how or why people have been investing more heavily into startups? In this episode on InvestStream, Pankaj talks about a couple of reasons why people might start investing in early stage startups.
