The Venture Capital industry in India is on the surge, now more than ever, thanks to Indian startups finding their niche and subsequently their corresponding addressable markets.
While VC firms might fall under the radar of the so-called FOMO (fear of missing out), heavy dependence falls upon the investment analysts or associates who carry out the due-diligence, sourcing of deals, market research, consumer behaviour, and industry trends.
These professionals are the go-to for any partner or investor in a venture capital or private equity organisation.
