-Mangalam Singhal, M&A, Make My Trip

Team 100X interviewed some of the top investors across the globe about their venture investing journeys, startups, and India. Here, Mangalam Singhal, Mergers & Acquisitions, Make My Trip shares his responses.

 

Q1. What is your motivation to be in the venture investing business

I think it would be more personal than professional. Venture investing helps you balance 2 sides of the coin: 1) Supporting great ideas and innovations. 2) meanwhile learning about them. Eventually everyone wants to be an entrepreneur in some form or the other.

Workday is mostly running our Corporate mandate and finding/evaluating Travel oriented ventures. Ending up spending quality family time & playing lawn tennis.

Q3. What is your view on the future of India as a market

India (from a growth perspective) is mostly looked at from an Urban perspective. Rural India led demand and growth participation will catalyse any number assumed.

Q4. Help describe your investment thesis and ideas you would like to back

We focus on Travel/Hospitality ventures bringing in Sustainability and Convenience for Customers

Q5. What are your 5 key learnings from your experience as a venture investor

Valuation is built on Excels; Real Value through execution

Leveraging our Corporate brand strength
