“FinTech, BioTech, and Software should have an exciting year ahead. Within these three areas, companies are being financed more and more by venture capital and private equity, as strategic acquirors are earnings driven and prefer ‘off balance sheet’ funding of new initiatives and disruptive technologies. Once the market acceptance is clear and the business metrics are proven, they step in and buy companies as their core strength is scaling. As a result, venture / private equity is taking the opportunity to work with founders / entrepreneurs in buying and scaling businesses to a point where strategics must step in.”

“Generative AI is the ‘Y2K’ moment of Education. As the Education sector is traditionally data poor, there is opportunity for technology, especially AI, to bridge this gap. In the India EdTech market for example, we believe AI will take over a large amount of delivery currently executed by the services industry in the near future. For US investors interested in the India market, we suggest having a good handle on price point. India is a complex market, and overestimating the market opportunity at high price points can be a common mistake.”
