ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Raghu Mendu, MBA '81, was a veteran of both large companies and entrepreneurial ventures when he founded VenturEast in 1995. He thought an early-stage venture capital firm was the best way to bring his and his partners' experience to bear in India's economy. In this video interview, Mendu shares how helping fledgling companies grow is rewarding intellectually and personally. "While we're not a social fund as some funds claim to be, I think if you do things right, that social benefit will come," he says.

Mendu also recalls some of his youthful adventures, including what it's like to drive a motorbike through a cyclone.
