Three reasons for cheer in the venture capital market: LiveMint

"Valuation markdowns, down rounds, business model pivots, shutdowns and investment write-offs have become the staple this summer for India’s venture capital market. However, there’s still plenty to cheer about."
In a LiveMint article, journalist Snigdha Sengupta quotes Venture Intelligence Data on Investor returns in Equitas Holdings:
The most recent and notable example is the public market debut of Equitas Holdings. The Chennai-based MFI (microfinance institution) mopped up Rs.2,176 crore from retail and institutional investors, drawing demand for more than 17 times the number of shares on sale. Importantly, it served up exits for as many as 10 venture capital investors, reported Business Standard (image below). Among them, impact fund Aavishkaar Goodwell made more than 13 times its money on a $1.5 million investment made in March 2008, said the report citing data compiled by Venture Intelligence.
