Vickers Venture eyeing early-stage investments in India: Chairman Finian Tan
Finian Tan explains his rationale for investing in India now, how he picks and backs start-ups and how Vickers Venture will build up a team in India
New Delhi: Finian Tan will be remembered as the man who backed China’s Baidu in 2000 when nobody else would. Five years later, Baidu’s listing on Nasdaq would go down as one of the best IPOs in the history of the US-based stock exchange. Today, Baidu, referred to as China’s equivalent of search engine giant Google, is worth over $80 billion in market value.
