Venture Capital, Value(s) and the Making of Entrepreneurship in Contemporary India

Gaining investment is increasingly seen as indispensable to entrepreneurial success among Indian startups. Ghosh’s presentation shows that the process of seeking capital forms a cultural site through which entrepreneurial identities are shaped. Rather than searching purely for financial value, investment decisions interweave economic, cultural, and moral values. The talk shows that the significance of personal networks, technology and performative risk-taking in creating investment potential, reifies existing forms of social and cultural capital in contemporary India.
