वेंचर कैपिटल : क्या, क्यों, और कैसे. Venture Capital in India.

2019 was a record-breaking one for Indian startups. Across sectors, companies raised more than $4 billion in venture capital last year. In fact, the first three quarters of 2019 alone witnessed the emergence of eight new unicorns (valuation > $ 1billion). So, in this episode, we take a close look at the world of venture capital which invests risk capital in these companies. To discuss this, we have Kushal Bhagia (@kushalbhagia), CEO of Firstcheque, an early-stage VC firm. We talk about:
How a VC firm works - who invests in a VC firm, how do they make money, and how do employees of VC firms make money.
What kind of business should look for VC money?
Why do VC firms invest in such hugely loss-making startups?
There is a critique of Indian VC space that most VCs have not been entrepreneurs. Is that a fair criticism? What are the consequences in India? Is it changing?
How is the startup scene in India changing?

यह ज़माना स्टार्टअप और नए उद्यमों का है | इस तरह की कम्पनियाँ शुरूआती चरणों में अक़्सर वेंचर कैपिटल के ज़रिए पूँजी जुटाती है | तो हमने सोचा इसी वेंचर कैपिटल जगत पर एक लम्बी पुलियाबाज़ी की जाए जिससे हम समझ सके कि वेंचर कैपिटल की एक अर्थव्यवस्था में आख़िर क्या जगह है? इस विषय पर चर्चा के लिए जुड़ रहे है कुशल भागिया जो फर्स्टचेक नामक एक वेंचर कैपिटल कंपनी के सीईओ है |
