From Santa Clara in California to Singapore, via London, India and Tel Aviv, the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) continues to create a stir on the financial planet and in the world of “tech”.
It only took 44 hours for the favourite bank of San Francisco entrepreneurs, a victim of a “bank run” (bank panic), to be forced to close its counters. And alert the financial markets.
At the end of last week, banking stocks were caught in the storm, suffering significant losses on the stock market, while investors began to rehash the bad memories of the 2007-2008 crisis.
According to Tracxn data, Silicon Valley Bank has invested in approximately 21 Indian startups, but the specific investment amount is not disclosed. Among the Indian startups that received funding from SVB are Bluestone, Carwale, and Loyalty Rewardz.
However, Tracxn’s data reveals that SVB has not made substantial investments in Indian startups since 2011. Some of the startups on the Tracxn list that received funding from SVB include Paytm, Paytm Mall, and One97 Communications.
Paytm founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma has confirmed that Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) has fully divested its investment in the company and earned significant returns, despite investing only $1.7 million. Sharma stated that SVB is no longer a shareholder in Paytm.
