As a sector that has upended practically every other industry by disrupting as well as driving efficiencies through innovation in process and product management, technology has been the bulwark of business activity. Many financial and strategic investors see an opportunity of not just scaling up mid-sized software and engineering services companies swiftly but also squeezing more efficiencies in India Tech Inc at large. Not surprisingly, it has been an evergreen sector in attracting private capital. Technology as a sector has accounted for nearly half of all private investments by volume and attracted capital worth around $51 billion, or over a fifth of the total private capital flow in India over the last decade, according to VCCEdge.
To gauge how tech companies are firming up their strategies for the next leg of their evolution, finding new pockets of demand away from the US and Europe, rethinking their capital needs and balancing organic growth with inorganic expansion to achieve better scale, VCCircle organized its debut edition of the Technology Investment Summit through a virtual platform. This event saw a large participation from alternative investments leaders, industry stakeholders and Asia’s influential limited partners, general partners and marquee advisors.
Dr. Anil Kaul was joined by top leaders from companies like Fractal, Hasura, Ramco Systems, Accenture, Deloitte to name a few. Anil presented his point of view in the session ‘Mining investment dollars out of data – security, analytics, compliance & more’ that addressed how small-mid scale tech firms can create attractive business model around data, which buckets of data management can lead to success and how does the future opportunities look like for investors.
