There seems to be no dearth of money nor of new business ideas; new startups are arising and they getting quickly funded is now the new normal. But at the hindsight are you not wondering if this scenario seems to be similar to the bygone dot com era? But hold, Business India editorial says that “unfortunately, in India, we are almost two decades behind the West and it is only now that we are beginning to see the evolution of a venture capital and private equity ecosystem.
