Abstract

Availability of seed, venture capital and bank finance for start ups and SMEs is one of the key factors determining the strength of the innovation system in any country. As India gears up to pass the Protection and Utilization of Public Funded IP Bill, it needs to closely study the availability of such capital to its start ups and SMEs. This article discusses the current situation and trends in relation to availability of bank (credit) and equity finance for SMEs and start ups in India.
