Not only VCs customers are going ask these questions. Need prove good validation and results before presenting power point. Today money is limited and VC are concern about failures. 1990 we have enough money in the system. Today many VC companies are not doing well. Technology is changing also. Avoid software only product unless it is related to 4G or advanced networking products. It is easy to copy Internet software products, however if you hardware and software then that project will be funded. He knows all these very well. Need to do market research and think how others will react or copy the idea quickly. It is a complex issue. Test test test then you can be confident that it will be funded. No need for business plan. Need to keep it simple working model.

I think some of the Indians who had made the US their home, are trying to give something more to their original homeland and it is just not funding that I am talking about. There is a movement afoot where VCs like Khosla and M.R. Rangaswami who co-founded Sandhill Group LLC as well as entrepreneur/technology pioneers like Naveen Jain, founder of Moon Express, Intelius and Infospace - are all getting together to give what the Indian entrepreneurs desperately need - that capability to market their products and look at a bigger market. The presentation from Naveeen was really impressive and it was not about his company but about how a person who was from a not-so-wealthy background could dream so big and achieve his dreams. Since I find so many readers liking these type of articles, am going to do a piece about that talk of Jain that struck me as one of the best that I have heard in my entire journalistic career spanning two decades. It was a talk with no notes and it came from his heart and I am sure it would inspire many entrepreneurs - -Indian and others.

You are most welcome. It was such an eye-opener for me too - because they usually don't allow journalists or any outsiders to watch these kind of sessions (either at a conclave or a private appointment)

Yes, he was definitely more interested in the person/founder and had this uncanny knack of gauging each... there were some who came with a 4- man battalion while most of them were just two and some like Surewaves, just one. But then, the Surewaves founder was a veteran and was heading Broadcom operations in India - so he could handle this situation but believe it or not, he too was quite nervous and edgy though he had all the right answers to Khosla's questions

They were all so nervous. I guess it was because they wouldn't have dreamt that they would get a chance at making this kind of a presentation when they had started out..but the best part of it was he was kind in his comments and even in his criticisms - which was/is an endearing trait

We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
