Black letter day for startups & entrepreneurship in India!
Has to be said - new age startups are lucky to be (largely) funded by equity, debt driven businesses are far more harsh & stressful #CCD https://t.co/xDisccn2U1

It seems to indicate that the Private Equity fund manager acted like a money lender n seems to have caused unbearable stress - needs to be investigated pic.twitter.com/DYKjTnRU0Q— Kiran Mazumdar Shaw (@kiranshaw) July 30, 2019
So heartbreaking. Had met him a few times - an absolute gentleman. How can someone get pushed so far to the edge in business, that they decide to take a fall themselves. I will always see his legacy as a very successful entrepreneur who brought coffee in our lives. My prayers 🙏🏼 https://t.co/bXHh2vyKmW— Kunal Bahl (@1kunalbahl) July 30, 2019
