Early stage venture-capital investing in India appears to be the flavor of the season. There are funds being set up from $5 million to $30 million. Some are being established by angel investors, some by former executives and investment bankers, others by successful entrepreneurs. Some are likely to be supported by government-linked institutions, some by international investors and high net-worth individuals.

There is a wide array of types and styles of private equity and the term private equity has different connotations in different countries. Among the most common investment strategies in private equity include leveraged buyouts , venture capital , growth capital , distressed investments and mezzanine capital . In a typical leveraged buyout transaction, the private equity firm buys majority control of an existing or mature firm. This is distinct from a venture capital or growth capital investment, in which the private equity firm typically invests in young or emerging companies, and rarely obtain majority control.
