Opinion | PE Investor and promoter need to work together
Investor should operate with an entrepreneurial mindset and not behave like a financial analyst
Private equity (PE) has been playing a crucial role by backing Indian entrepreneurs with long-term risk capital to help build great businesses. The industry has done a commendable job of investing in 4,000-odd Indian companies in the last 15 years, putting to work more than $200 billion. In the process, several marquee businesses, such as Airtel, PVR Cinemas, Havells, AU Finance, and RBL Bank have been built, while many new-age ideas, including Flipkart, Byju’s, Ola, Swiggy, Paytm, and Dream 11, were brought to life.
