Kanwal Rekhi: India has proven to be a bottomless pit for VCs

Brace yourself for a tough read, but investor Kanwal Rekhi goes UnPluggd and has a few thoughts to share about the VC business.
While the sentiment is primarily for ‘all’ VCs business, his take on Indian startup ecosystem is:

By the way, Kanwal Rekhi has called Flipkart a foolish startup.
