India is one of the few economies in the world which have resiliently weathered the global economic recession with 7.4% GDP growth in 2009-10. Favorable demographics skewed towards younger and productive population, prudent banking regulations, growing disposable incomes, and macro-economic indicators like GDP, exports and factory output all place India among the most attractive investment destinations. India's explosive domestic consumption story has placed India as one of the safest investment bets and a premier destination based on allocation priority of global institutional investors.

The time has arrived for the global angel and VC community to have a serious look at India!
