Be careful with sharing your idea.
Launch fast, evolve fast. Great ideas are easy to come by, execution and evolution speed (learning, iterating) are what make the difference.

Re: Angel Investors !!!

Hi
Here is my two cents.

1. Most of the industries you mentioned in your post like Seeds, Pesticides, Agro chemicals, etc have large number of organized as well as unorganized players in India. Large names like Tata, ITC and Birla and number of other companies are already very big (read USD 500M +) in these sector and then there are virtually all the large MNC companies as well in this sector. So I found it bit incorrect to quote that Agro Industry in India is totally with un-organised sector. I suppose there could be about 100+ listed companies in BSE / NSE / Abroad coming from Agro sector specifically in the area you mentioned.

2. If you have a dream and you need an angel, then good luck. IF you have a technology which is great and out smarts the other established and unestablished players then that is something which could interest someone.

3. The sector is very complex when it comes to sales distribution. There might be few hundred thousand retailer in India. They won't sell an un branded and not established product.

You text and especially using Sir sounds very North Indian. Where are you from?

Wrong, its not that simply, one has to make quite an effort wasting time like that.

Yeah man, being addressed as "Sir" like that was way to awkward for me, I did'nt know how to react. Would appreciate if the OP can just call me mate, dude, twoddler etc...

I only like my gfs calling me Sir at certain times.

Tons, from my team, from me, impossible to execute them all, alone or as a team or even as a team + outsourcing. Implementation speed is everything (unless you are in the theoretical physics business or the likes).

Well I get ideas too, tons of them singlehandedly but here I meant money making business ideas.

If you got any, we can go 50-50.

I am from the state of West Bengal.

At least in the market of my state,...........umm I think the biggies you termed,does not holds the last word.The people who would know the seller personally holds the last word,anyway..........it requires the serious commitment to get going.But it needs money to start.

@wasted.........what kind a money making ideas you imply ???.........the market is too saturated with those.

Anyway,
Happy New Year 2011 to all
May good luck shine on me this year.

well every established players are faster than me,and their Directors are older than me too......thing is Syngenta has become the seed developer,my specialisation would only be Biofertiliser only one focus product.

You will find many Indian Biotech companies on the web,
some into bio-diesel,some into seeds,others into this and that,well India needs grass root level product..........as per my assessment.

Some of these companies price their products very high...........well their corporate policies may allow them to.But most farmers here are not capable of affording them.Which thus makes it a chaotic situation in the market,many brave farmers try the new things and due to fertility and irrigation reasons they fail and they fail to clear the debts.As a result,the company does a very good one time business.........and then shift to something else.

As I have already said,only Angel Investors can in this case help pull the miracle.........Investors who look into too much of pros and cons and this and that.........are well normal investors.
So basically you want people to give you money without asking too many questions. Emmm.. good luck

Its not what I meant...........anyway thanks for your wish of Good Luck.

It is more like this, people who would invest or are interested in my idea,should be well aware of the risk too and trust the idea that may just work out.

I never expect anyone to invest who has got doubts or the slightest notion of "this may not work out".......that is too much of negative before any of it is positive !!!! So having such a partner in a long run or just for records is not beneficial or good for business.

You can definitely count on that fact that any investor willing to give you money will do a proper figure analysis. And back out, when the risk is too big.

In order to attract an Angel, you really must work hard and offer an investment case. Not only a dream. Even angels will not decide upon someone's dream.

For smaller amounts you can check the following link. Private people offering money, for a certain interest rate of course.

www.cashare.ch.

As another alternative you may want to discuss your ideas with:

http://www.btsadvisors.com/start.html

They are investing in India. As such you can at least know if your project is attractive at all, or if it basically must remain a dream.
