VC/PE investments for 2015 close at ~USD 14B

Posted by fairval on January 12, 2016

Eight years after 2007, when India Inc absorbed ~USD18B of VC/PE investment, the sector once again saw robust activity in the year gone by. Total VC/PE investment hit almost USD14B, the second best year in the history of VC/PE investments in India.

In contrast, in 2014, total reported investment was ~USD9B, from 381 deals. Total reported deals were 556, around 178 did not report amount of investment. In 2015, total deals reported were 881, of which 300 did not disclose amount invested.

These numbers may not necessarily match with figures from some other sources, we have noticed some other numbers which are larger than India Business Reports’ number. The reason could be people are counting within VC/PE  numbers, deals which aren’t exactly what we would call a VC or a PE deal. For example, we don’t see how a strategic investment qualifies as venture capital. Or an investment in a company outside India, even though the source of money could be from India.
