TKM #45: Super Angels

Written by 

In this episode, I have two TV Tech Show hosts - Sudhir Syal of ET NOW and Aalaap Ghag, formerly of UTV's Techtree. We talk about Microsoft buying Skype - one of the most high profile acquisition in recent times. Microsof has received a lot of bashing in the press for the sort of money they spent to buy skype but here is the TKM panel's take on it. Also, after discussing about the huge VC investments in the US, Indian enterpreneurs are finally seeing their share. There are no prizes that eCommerce is the focus area for VCs but is it too concentrated in one segment remains to to be seen.

Sudhir also tells us about "Super Angels" Initiative on his show - Starting up. If you would like to enter your start up in Super Angels, write to startingup [at] etnow.tv or join their facebook page
