These funds are not only helping the startups find it easier to raise funds but are also adding gear to the Indian startup ecosystem, thereby making it a prominent and growing entity in the global landscape.

Therefore, raising funds from venture capitalists is the way to go for the Indian startups of now.

The venture capitalist provides the funding knowing that there’s a significant risk associated with the company’s future profits and cash flow. Capital is invested in exchange for an equity stake in the business rather than given as a loan. The growth in the percentage of VC investments in India is phenomenal. They have opened up newer expansion and avenues for Indian startups and small businesses and the future looks quite promising. The criteria for the hierarchy of the above-mentioned top VC firms in India is based on the number of investments only.
