Tata Electronics is in talks for semiconductor packaging foray🔋
Tata Electronics is in talks with large global semiconductor companies and outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) vendors to foray into advanced packaging of semiconductor components, said Raja Manickam, the chief executive of its OSAT arm.
OSAT vendors provide third-party integrated circuit packaging and test services.
Tata Electronics has surveyed four states – Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telangana and Odisha – as prospective locations to house its facility. Last year, Tata Sons chairman N Chandrasekharan said the conglomerate planned to foray into semiconductor manufacturing.
The government has unveiled a $10 billion (about Rs 76,000 crore) plan to attract chipmakers from around the world to set up shop in India.

San Francisco-based Rise Capital enters India, to invest in early-stage startups🌄
Venture capital firm Rise Capital, founded by former Tiger Global executive Nazar Yasin, has set up shop in India and has hired Anuj Mehta as its India head to source opportunities from the region.
The VC firm is looking to take seed to Series B bets on Indian companies with a cheque size ranging from $100,000-$10 million from its third fund, Yasin, who quit Tiger Global in 2013, told.
