Entrepreneur's Feb'11 issue talks about "Who Will Fund You Today"

Most entrepreneurs are on a perennial mission”to raise funds for their ventures. Whether it's to start up and plunge into the world of entrepreneurship or to expand their enterprise and drive it closer toward their vision, the fund hunt takes up a considerable amount of time, sweat and perseverance for those on the trail. Entrepreneurial stalwarts like Sanjeev Bikhchandani who are now considered game changers in their fields went through these difficulties when searching for funds for their then-startups over a decade ago. And entrepreneurs today continue to stumble into a similar net everyday.

The good news, however, is that this mission is far from impossible. This is because the problem does not lie in the availability of funds, or the lack of it”it lies in whom you approach for these funds.

Entrepreneur, this month, has spoken to India's leading venture capitalists and laid their cards out on the table. The information-loaded cover story tells you exactly what these VCs are thinking. Find out which VCs are looking to invest in which sectors in 2011 for a heads up on whom you should approach for funds this year. If you're planning to start up in 2011, head right for these sectors; if you're already there, expand! Also tune into the nuances of the investment scenario that is developing and the possibilities that will open up in 2011.

In contrast to the investment climate of the year gone by, funds across a wide spectrum appear to be bullish about India this year. In fact, some are even eager to invest in fields and business ideas they would have shunned without batting an eyelid last year. Still, they do point out that not everyone can be funded”a strong business plan will go a long way in turning the odds in your favor.

Funds for entrepreneurial ventures are in abundance this year. And Entrepreneur's "2011 Funding Special' will lead you straight to your best bets of 2011.
