On 26, April, AECAL was part of the panel at Nishith Desai Associates. They discussed investment opportunities for European businesses in India. NDA, a law firm that bases on research, has offices all over the world. The panel consisted of Anil Chaturvedi, Dominik Gyllensvard, and Selva Naik. Here are excerpts from the meeting:
E-commerce Role in India
It is evident that e-commerce will play a big role in India’s ecosystem. This is because of the big sum of money that Amazon has invested in India. It has also been in existence for three years and has over 50 logistic areas. Another fact that makes the statement reasonable is the disorganization in Indian retail.
Startups Should Focus on Pricing and Branding
At most times, AECAL invests in founders who went to study and work in the west and later on decide to go back home; India. This is because of its belief that such individuals are well-educated and data-driven. The only thing found lacking was pricing and branding. That is the field they work at coaching them. By branding, it means talking to the target audience and moving their emotions.
