K@W on the SoftBank Vision Fund - Flipkart investment

Knowledge @ Wharton quotes Venture Intelligence data and founder in its article titled "Will SoftBank Vision Fund’s $6 Billion Bet in India Pay Off?"
Extracts:
"(says) Arun Natarajan, founder of information and analysis firm Venture Intelligence: “Given how the future of so many of the local internet and mobile unicorns was hanging in the balance in 2016, the arrival of such a deep-pocketed investor is a sigh of relief.”
"He points out that other than the 2011 investment in InMobi, SoftBank really started to invest in the Indian market directly only in late 2014. The less than three-year period is too early to pronounce a verdict on their ‘track record’,” Natarajan says. He also notes that the “sheer mathematics” of the Vision Fund means that it needs to find and invest in “dozens of companies” that can absorb $1 billion, if not more, each. “Which naturally means that these companies should have already achieved significant scale — at least in their home markets. …

Growth Stage deals perk up VC investments in August

Sluggishness in Early Stage however continues
Venture Capital investments* perked up in August to 34 investments worth as much as $440 million - making it the second highest month in 2017.

Tiger Global post Flipkart: Which way will it go?

Amidst the drama around SoftBank's $2.5 Billion investment in Flipkart, not much attention has been paid to the fact that the deal involves the exit (albeit partial) of key Flipkart backer, Tiger Global, from the most audacious Venture Capital investment in India.

The VC arm of the New York-based hedge fund, led globally by Lee Fixel, is estimated to have invested $1 Billion in Flipkart starting in end 2009. Tiger's bet on Flipkart - which arguably triggered the rush to invest and create other Internet & Mobile Unicorns in India - has also been described as the single biggest risk to the technology ecosystem. "Unfortunately, due to just one individual - Lee Fixel of Tiger Global - Flipkart has gone from being a poster child to being the single biggest risk to the technology ecosystem. I hope for a soft landing," angel investor and iSpirt co-founder Sharad Sharma had said during the heady days of 2015, when Flipkart's valuation had hit a peak of $15 Billion. …
