Startups can expect more money, higher valuations and major exits in 2015

Venture capital firms that made 2014 the biggest year for technology investing in India expect to pay more for good companies this year, as competition separates the winners from laggards. Some of the world’s most sophisticated investors put money into Indian startups last year, with most of the capital going to consumer internet startups. "The India startup opportunity is being discussed in global boardrooms," said Bhatnagar. There is good reason for this rising interest from global investors. The valuations of Indian internet companies have soared with increased net access boosting the topline. The valuation of Flipkart, the country’s largest online retailer, has grown nearly ten-fold to $11 billion in just over a year. The Bengaluru company aims to sells merchandise worth over $3 billion this fiscal.
