According to a Venture Intelligence report, in the six-year period between 2011-2016, PE/VC firms invested over $72 billion in Indian companies, which is over 6.5 times what India Inc raised through initial public offerings during the same period. The report states that the growth rate in PE/VC funding has outstripped that of IPO markets.
