Areas of Interest

Greentech: Within Greentech, energy efficiency in form of green building materials and smart grid and wastewater management look most attractive.

Mobile internet: We see a number of consumer and business applications for the mobile phone unleashed through the iPhone and other smart phones. We also see the mobile Internet users out number the PC Internet users world wide in the next few years. In countries like India, the mobile Internet users may already have crossed PC Internet users. This opens up limitless opportunities for entrepreneurs to create businesses.

Hottest technologies

With the right storage technology, intermittent energy sources such as solar and wind can start competing with incumbent energy sources such as coal and natural gas.
