Angel Investing in Indian Startups 2020

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.

In this week’s InvestStream Live, we are going to 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.

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. In addition to investing in startups, TCAP also invests in real estate, debt and equity.

Fundraising to Protect IP

via IFTTT

IP Protection can be something very important for a startup but it can also be a very expensive thing to do and do right. Some tech startups consider raising money primarily for filing patents and other intellectual property protections while others think it might be a good idea to raise money from angels or venture capitalists specifically to protect the IP they’ve created.

In this short episode of InvestStream, I share a few thoughts on whether it’s a good idea or not to try to raise money from angels or VCs primarily (or solely) for the purpose of filing patents, trademarks, litigation or financing other forms of intellectual property protection.

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

via IFTTT

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).
