Intro to Intel Capital / Meet this evening?

I am a new user to VentureWoods and would like to introduce myself. I recently relocated from the Bay area to Mumbai as Director of Intel Capital’s $250M India-focused fund. (Intel Capital ) is the strategic investments arm of Intel Corporation. We invest in technology-related companies – stage agnostic (seed to PIPE) and $$ agnostic (largest deal was a $600M equity deal and we have done sub-$1M deals as well). We have been investing in India for about 8 years, and have done about 50 investments to date, with an active portfolio of 20+ companies.

I have been an entrepreneur myself, and am keenly interested in being around, and working with other entreprenuers and VCs. I am flying in to Delhi this evening for a Cleantech conference tomorrow. I am open this evening, and would love to meet people for drinks/dinner if anyone is interested in chatting about technology trends, startups, VC investing, relocating to India, Sunjay Dutt case, etc. :) Please email me directly at pradeep.m.tagare@intel.com if interested.

I look forward to participating in discussions on this forum.
