ETNow did an interesting faceoff session with myself and Vishal Gondal at the Proto Pune edition. I quite liked the informal format – with Vishal at the other end, you can be assured of some laughter!

On a more serious note, the discussion does touch upon some of the evolution of VC space in India – with respect to people involved, localization of investment themes, and ever-growing need for an active angel environment.
