A few days ago some students at E-Cell IMT Ghaziabad reached out to do this podcast as part of their ongoing series with startup investors. It’s always great speaking with students about entrepreneurship & investing — so here’s a the link to the brief podcast session with the E-Cell team, where we talk about investing criteria, founding teams, student-led startups, valuations & culture.
Thanks everyone for the positive feedback on the Hinglish video on investor perspectives from earlier this week. Part 2 of the video is also out now.
In this we talk about startup events, angel investing, mentoring, exits, women entrepreneurship & other stuff. Hopefully, there are some takeaways for founders & angels.
It was recently highlighted to me that seemingly all startup conferences/events in India happened in English. And that the content produced about startup ecosystem was also overwhelmingly in English & sometimes jargon-laden, which a few founders couldn’t comfortably grasp.
Honestly, I never thought that English as a medium would also become a barrier for founders, but it seems that as startups move to capture ‘Bharat’ and founders/angels come up all across India, we need more vernacular content on startup ecosystem. So as a first for me, here’s a small interview in Hinglish on some perspectives as an investor (Part 1 of 2). Hopefully, this is of help to some people out there.
