Started in the late 1980s, Venture Capital (VC) industry in India is passing through a paradigm shift in the contemporary uncertain, but seemingly promising, economics landscape. The present study attempts to comprehend the changing trend of VC industry in the country, by analyzing the data regarding the proportion of sectoral deals, total volume, the number of deals and the growth in the number of VC firms during 2001 and 2007. Such trends during the economic crisis have also been reviewed. The study results could infer that the VC initiatives in the country outlived the crisis through diversification and innovation. The paradigm shift in VC initiative can be manifested by the shift from early stage financing to later stage, signifying the interest of venture capitalists to have stake in proven ventures due to their acquired precautionary nature of risk aversion.
