A ToI article quotes Venture Intelligence data on Private Equity & Venture Capital exits in India: Driven by the Walmart-Flipkart deal, the year has so far seen nearly $22 billion worth of exits till date through more than 160 deals, according to data from research firm Venture Intelligence. While 2017 saw $14.5 billion for the whole year, previous years saw less than $10 billion.

Q: In your seed round, you raised funding from the who’s who of Angel investors like Rajan Anandan, Sharad Sharma, Deep Kalra, Sunil Kalra, etc through the Letsventure platform.
