VALUATION CORRECTION? – Startup Inc Staring at a Shakeup

Amid all the brouhaha about a big startup bubble waiting to burst, founders and investors in India appear quite sanguine about what is unfolding in the sector. A majority of investors and founders in a dipstick survey by ET felt that startup valuations are “not unreasonable“.Even so, most of them believe that a correction is coming.They don’t foresee much change in the way investing is expected to happen in the foreseeable future. On the other hand, investors see deal flow increasing, reflecting the rising popularity of starting up. This is especially so for early-stage ventures. The debate about startup valuations has grown louder after prominent Silicon Valley investors have raised red flags about a bubble in that market. The troubles with China have served to stoke these discussions. One group that is not complaining about high valuations is the lot comprising the Indian Unicorns, or those with at least a billion dollars in valuation. Keep it coming, they say.
