Up Close & Personal: Jishnu Bhattacharjee, MD, Nexus Venture Partners

Jishnu Bhattacharjee, MD, Nexus Venture Partners, widely regarded as one of the most entrepreneur friendly VCs in the industry, has had a great 2012 with three big exits, namely Gluster, Cloud.com and Netmagic. To know the secret behind Nexus’s success, we spoke with Jishnu on a number of topics, varying from his sectors of interest, how he identifies good entrepreneurs, and the trends in general. Here’s Jishnu, unplugged, for you!

“As an entrepreneur, you must identify why you’re doing what you do. Find your driver. Once you have done this, what is more important for an entrepreneur is to know what you don’t know. Once you know this, you can build the right team around you. These are the two most important things for an entrepreneur from what I have seen. Other than this, be tenacious, do not take no for an answer and keep at it.”
