The first edition of LetsVenture LetsHangout series, a live online chat in which we have virtual coffee with leading entrepreneurs, thinkers, and investors. This one’s with Dave Richards, Co-founder and partner at Unitus Seed Fund, a $20 million seed-stage investment fund interested in startups that innovate for the masses in areas of healthcare, education, agriculture, mobile services, retail, water and energy. Unitus Seed Fund looks to invest in startups that have the largest Indian market in mind – the low income masses.

Dave shared his insights on what it takes to innovate for large, emerging markets. The mobile platform has proven to be the golden ticket to vast markets of low income populations, fueling the on-demand economy, but just how does one leverage the platform to deliver products and services efficiently and at scale? What works and what doesn’t? What are the sensitive issues and pain points, and also, where are the big opportunities that can yield phenomenal returns if tapped?

Find out more about the challenges and opportunities presented by a vast untapped market – India’s aspiring masses, and what it means to make a go of it here, and particularly now.
