Chennai, Tamil Nadu, January 19, 2010 /India PRwire/ -- After falling-off-a-cliff in late 2008, Private Equity & Venture Capital investments in India have displayed steady signs of recovery since mid-2009. The environment for exits too has clearly improved with sharp up-tick in IPO and M&A activity. However, the scenario for new fund raising still remains murky. In this context, key players in the Indian Private Equity and Venture Capital ecosystem will converge at Venture Intelligence APEX '10 to introspect and brainstorm on the way forward.
