This blog is an attempt to bring the Indian venture community closer together. All its constituents, right from the entrepreneurs themselves, venture capital firms, angel funds, lawyers, recruiters, investment bankers, incubation cells — the list goes on.
As an entrepeneur, then as an angel investor and private equity professional, I have felt that despite close alignment of our end goals, there exist vast gaps in our understanding of each other. Gaps which are often responsible for inefficiencies in the system. For example, the entrepreneurs’ collective understanding of what the “hot areas” are might be very different from the investors’ view — venturewoods is a platform to discuss, and not necessarily agree on, those views. This site is an attempt to prevent all of us from being lost in the woods.
The objective of venturewoods is to be an open community without compromising on quality. If you feel that you have thoughts that you want to share, feel free to write in and request an account. In any case, do feel free to comment.

I just came out of an early stage startup – AirTight Networks, venture backed and headquartered in Mtn Vw, CA. We incubated this startup entirely out of India.
I am at MIT Sloan and plan to pursue yet another startup venture with some ideas of mine and again incubating this out of India. I would love to join this blog and post my thoughts periodically.
Let me know how I can get an account.

Could you please let me know how to get a login here ? I couldn’t find Aloks email ID here ?
Came across your blog, great effort. I wonder if you remember, but we had met almost 3 years back regarding SMS enabling your portal. I was representing a company called ValueFirst. Great work,
keep it up

All the best. Such platform can add great value and bridge various gaps for entrepreneurs.
Best of luck guys, and I appreciate your good will.
There could also be a bunch of things that could be done with ning.com to seed a vibrant private equity community around http://www.venturewoods.org.
I’ll try to put together something in the coming week.
