Opportunity to invest in India continues to be very strong: Kanwaljit Singh, Helion
Meet Kanwaljit Singh, Co-founder and Senior Managing Director, Helion http://www.helionvc.com/kanwaljit.htm. He has over two decades of experience in venture investing, and serves on the boards of NGPay, Hurix, Amba Research, HummingBird, YLG Salons, Qwikcilver, Mast Kalandar, Yepme, Attano and LifeCell.
“We are seeing obviously that the opportunity to invest in India continues to be very strong. We have raised three funds, and are deploying cash to India on a regular basis. Clearly, the consumption story is still strong, in spite of the economic slowdown. We see that the markets are growing well. The other important thing is that the quality of the entrepreneurs is actually improving, on a year-on-year basis. Therefore, our thesis of looking to invest in India – which is basically the technology and the consumer consumption story – is pretty much strong.”
