Wish to announce that Canaan Partners (pronounced K-nun) is opening their office in India, and I will be heading that up. Canaan is an early stage investment firm, and focusses on IT and Healthcare technologies. I am pretty encouraged that the Canaan Partnership is keen to share their learnings and experiences of over 19 years with the nascent Indian ecosystem, and have a genuine desire to engage with the entrepreneurs here.

Instead of putting too much of a plug myself, might as well divert you to contentsutra and siliconbeat for the same. Here is the press release.

Here’s to more of successful entrepreneurial and VC activity in India!
