Serial entrepreneurs a prominent feature of India's startup boom

Thriving more on chaos than order as they hunt for the next new thing – serial entrepreneurs, those who build companies, sell, and begin anew – are emerging as a prominent feature of India’s startup boom. Experts are of the view that experienced entrepreneurs stand a better chance of attracting investor attention as well as drawing in employees and mentors when they return to startup once more. "It is definitely one of the factors that we look at, especially if the entrepreneur has worked with us before or a team that has done some notable company in the past," said Subrata Mitra, Partner, Accel Partners, that has backed 20 serial entrepreneurs of the total 70 investments in its portfolio and is best known in India for being the first to invest in Flipkart.
