WHEN to BE ANGEL: Startup Ecosystem in India is Booming

The Buzz word “STARTUP” is SEXY to hear to one of the human senses ūüôā

There was a time and era in India where people use to introduce themselves as Business woman or Businessman in a conference. YOU like it or not even being in business for 12+ years I still have to opt for the word “STARTUP STRATEGIST” rather than the heavy word “LAWYER”.

According to today piece of news in¬†BUSINESS STANDARD¬†“Angel, seed stage deals down 40%”

Angel investors don’t see exits on the horizon as funding in the next stages is not as robust as it used to be

HOWEVER………..

NOW is the RIGHT TIME to INVEST in STARTUPs in INDIA as the industry has matured and YOUNG DYNAMIC STUDENTS are taking up Entrepreneurship at an early age of 18yrs which was like a fairy tale story in early 2000.

As quoted in Forbes article: Sometimes there is nothing more relaxing than coming home after a tough day at work or going on vacation and picking up a great book and turning on some background music. Millions of people read with music playing, and now one app is working to bring those two worlds together into one digital experience, all-encompassing experience.

Newly-formed startup Bubo is looking to revolutionize how people consume both books and music with one of the first ever products that combines those two forms of media. The company pairs carefully crafted music with stories, with the tunes created specifically to match what is happening in the literature, some of which is already well-known, with other options that nobody has ever read before.

One of my personal favourite Startup co-founder quote by About.me founder Ryan Freitas

‚ÄúYour reputation is more important than your paycheck, and your integrity is worth more than your career.‚Ä̬†– Ryan Freitas, About.me co-founder

Invest in a young startup which is mentored by Industry expert. As we all know universal fact YOU are known by 5 people you are around. So select a STARTUP who has the ZEAL to Reach for the SKY. More than the number it is the execution of the ideas with small term and long term goals who will succeed in future. A very good example in INDIA is¬†Zomato¬†who rebranded their brand FOODIEBAY when Ebay opposed their trademark application in INDIA. It was an overnight affair and BOOM a new baby was born. SO be very careful while¬†selecting brand name¬†for your VENTURE before you are sued by the SHARKS ūüôā

Zomato solved a problem and I talk this from my real life experience.

I was a regular visitor of Tibet Kitchen at connaught place in the back lane. All of a sudden it was closed down due to metro work. Anyhow not feeling disheartened I used to search about Tibet Kitchen online and ONE FINE DAY FOODIEBAY popped out with its lastest address.

Voila Moment for a Foodie like me !!

So coming back to the point, invest in the person rather than the idea. If simple formula can be applied investors can double the MONEY and earn $$$$$$. Currently, investors have turned cautious after the euphoria of 2015 and 2016 and are waiting for exits to rotate their money.

As said by Ravindra Krishnappa, an angel investor from Bengaluru

‚ÄúPeople have come to realise that exits are going to be only in 5+ year timeframe, which means while¬†angel investment is sexy, it has lower liquidity than other forms of investment‚ÄĚ

YES, 5 year rule is very much applicable !!

Business idea is just like YOUR baby which has to be nurtured with ingredients of doing BUSINESS with passion and empathy. There is no shortcut to SUCCESS. Just like a new born baby who has to taught by the parents basic education before the kid enters KINDERGARDEN where the timeframe is again 4-5 years. So to bear the fruits one has to have the vision to ENVISION the future in the present state of affairs.

‚Äė‚ÄėAngels have turned cautious and choosy as they have burnt their fingers. The frenzy that you saw earlier is no longer there. Earlier, a company would start and get funded. Now, investors want to see a lot more traction before they invest,‚ÄĚ says Balaji.

Angel deals are down 47 percent since 2016 and 44 per cent since 2015, according to data compiled by research firm Venture Intelligence. Seed-stage deals are down 44 per cent and 42 per cent, respectively, while deal value fell 42 per cent and 38 per cent over 2016 and 2015.

We believe that getting legal opinion by patent attorney on any technology before launching is the need of the HOUR.

FREEDOM TO OPERATE

Freedom to Operate (FTO) patent searches help the technology enterprise to obviate patent litigation in court of law. 

Minimum risk of infringing the unlicensed intellectual property rights (IPR) and tangible property rights (TPR) of others.

Freedom to Operate (FTO) is commonly known as Clearance patent searches which helps the individual inventors, enterprise and Fortune 100 companies to  identify potential patent barriers that prevents them from launching their innovative technology in the market. For example, if the business product launch is in India then patent research has to be performed in Indian Patent office.

REMEMBER PATENT RIGHTS ARE TERRITORIAL IN NATURE.

CLEARNCE SEARCHES

It helps a company / individual inventor to commercialize their business product in a country by analyzing and searching patent literature invariably cited for issued or pending patents.

 

Legal opinion by a patent lawyer in India:  Aims at providing a legal opinion from the Indian Patent Attorney as to whether the technology in question is infringing or copying few elements of the patented invention or whether a product, process or service may be considered to infringe any patent(s) owned by others.

 

WHY KNOWING THE LEGAL STATUS OF THE IDENTIFIED PATENT IMPORTANT BEFORE ENTERING THE MARKET?

The legal status of the  patent can be abandoned in many cases even though the identified patent results are close to the technology. In such cases, one is free to use that technology.
