There has been a lot of activity and news about global venture funds targeting the Indian market. However, commitment through direct presence has been elusive by some of the largest funds.

The silicon valley venture ecosystem is very well developed, and over years there have been thousands of learnings that are engrained in minds of venture capital community. By not getting direct participation of that community, I think India is losing out that knowledge and experience. I think some successful valley venture firms setting up direct India presence and committing time of their partners to India (beyond keynote speeches) will go a long way in lending maturity to the Indian ecosystem.

No issues with getting the moolah in, though 🙂
