The $200 million that WeWork in India, is looking to raise in the whole, it can be in your own power, or by a combination of debt and equity, said Karan Virwani, though, he said, is that the achievement of the company’s previous valuation of around $3 billion, which would be a challenge.

“If I have a ICICI or any lender, somebody who was able to give it a valuation of as much as $800 million, a person would be able to say that the $1 billion-or one might say, to a $1.5 billion,” Jitu Virwani said.
