TIMES OF INDIA - Jan 14 - In the late 90s, Murugavel Janakiraman built a Tamil community website in the US, and to his surprise it was the matchmaking section that really took off. That sowed the idea for an online matchmaking service, Matrimony.com, which he started in 2000 in Chennai. Late last year, the company launched its IPO, but Janakiraman remembers how quite a few VCs felt his company wasn't one to tie the knot with. He was rejected by 10 VCs straight. They did not believe in his idea.
