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.

Currently work in technology at an investment bank, Ive recently been bitten by the startup bug. Would love to post on/cover startup news from new york. (I attend startup events periodically). You would be surprised by the very thriving technology startup scene in new york.
Let me know how I could contribute.
Cheers and keep up the good work!
I have an industry manufacturing solar water heaters, based in Bangalore, India for the past six years. Our products are approved by the Govt. of India
Also, I have been elected as President of All India ETC Solar Manufacturers Association.
Now I wish to take this to National level by the followng operations:
1. Nation wide advertisements
2. Maintaining stocks in various cities with potential markets, so that the products are available within a short time for customers.
3. Opeing showrooms in various cities, so that this will be coverted as a regular home appliance,
With these steps, I am confident to take up the sales to very high levels.
To initiate the above steps I am looking for angel investers/ VCs who can support our plans.
Just off-topic, but due to the large number of comments you receive, the site is a wee-bit unnavigable.
Could you do something about it?
