What to do promoters in India fear the most. I think it is Dilution or the “D” word. It is obvious that if you can build a billion $ company and own 90% or even 30% of it then it is great. However, if you could build a billion $ company and own only10%. Would that appeal to Indian founders/promoters ?
My view is that founders/promoters should think big and to attract talent/capital be prepared to dilute. This is surely a controversial view and against most of the big successes we hear about in India.
What do people think? How many new billion $ market cap companies will emerge from startups in the next decade in India ? Of these what will be the average holding by founders/promoters when the market cap touches $1 billion ?
