A Discussion about Indian Startups with Blume Ventures' Co-founder, Sanjay Nath

In this episode of InvestStream, I chat with my friend Sanjay Nath, co-founder and managing director at Blume Ventures in India. Sanjay has been an angel investor and VC for well over a decade and has invested in dozens of companies in India. We discuss a lot of topics including the maturing of the talent pool, increased capital availability for the growth stage, later stage VCs going upstream or earlier in their investments like Sequoia running an accelerator and much much more.

We discuss the maturation of the Indian ecosystem and high caliber founders, “India 3.0”, the Jio-fication of Tier 2 and 3 cities and how AgriTech, FinTech, HealthTech, EduTech and other areas that are exciting including some of Blume’s portfolio companies in these sectors. Sanjay then shares some thoughts on B2B and “advanced tech” and the evolution from B2C startups to the role of media focusing on funding and the change in the perception of startups by corporate executives and their willingness to not just invest in startups but also quit working at large companies and instead work at startups.

We close this episode with a few thoughts about the challenges of being a Venture Capitalist and selling LPs on the India tech startup dream and a request to our Angel and VC friends in India.
