Tim Draper on Indian VC Scene, Drought of VC backed IPOs et al

A few days back I came across this interview with Tim Draper: part 1 and  part 2.

Tim is a real maverick, innovator and risk taker if there ever was one. Not only has DFJ backed some truly pathbreaking innovations, but they have also led some innovations in the VC industry itself – globalizing through their affiliate network is one good example. 

Here is one statement from the interview, that I couldn’t agree more with: “[India is] a fantastic country, with huge opportunities, very large marketplace and a group of highly educated people. The culture is incredibly entrepreneurial. I don’t know what you guys did during that time before the free market, but you really know how to deal with a free market.”
