“Every crisis brings with it an opportunity. COVID-19 is no different” — Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
As we practice social distancing and waiting for a post Covid-19 world to emerge after the lockdowns, we also need to remember that the current crisis can have a silver lining for businesses and investors too. To help investors understand how startups offer an alternative as investment route, how they can optimise startup investments in the current climate, and to answer their questions before they jump into any new deals, Inc42 is presenting a Masterclass featuring Sanjay Mehta, Founder, 100X VC.
About The Webinar
Startup investments can provide disproportionate wealth creation opportunities. Before investing in startups, every investor should ask themselves:
- Am I ready to take on the capital risk?
- Do I have the required time & effort to build a portfolio?
- And last but not the least – Do I have the patience to wait for the disproportionate return?
Investing in early-stage companies is about capturing the value between the startup phase and the public company phase. The stock market is an inherently complex and sensitive entity. Real estate is illiquid. Startups, or early-stage private companies, generally have a very low correlation with traditional asset classes like stocks and real estate. Therefore, the only asset class where an investor can influence outcomes is startups. It’s illiquid, but it’s an advantage as investors only invest for the long-term.
Are you ready to take the capital risk? Do you have the required time to build a portfolio? Do you have the patience to wait for the return?
This Masterclass session will help you to explore ‘Startups’ as an alternative investment avenue and evaluate the most befitting deals. Join us and learn from the experiences of one of the most active investors in the Indian ecosystem.
