2016 was dominated by talk of jittery investor sentiment leading to a tougher funding climate for startups. Most VCs felt the era of founders enjoying a cash bonanza was a thing of the past – they’d now be subjected to much more stringent diligence and tougher terms.

There were events that corroborated this view. Several unicorns – such as Flipkart and Ola – saw their valuations slashed significantly. Rocket Internet made a feeble retreat from India and collectively lost almost US$700 million in 2016....
