Do you know how many unicorns exist in India?
As the third-largest tech startup ecosystem in the world with over 5000 startups, India has had over 1000 new startups crop up in the last year. (That staggering statistic only takes into account tech companies that incorporated between 2012 and 2018.) Reportedly, almost half of the start-ups founded this year are B2B businesses, bringing the number of Indian B2B startups to about 40 percent.
Sure, fintech is partly responsible for this growth in Indian startups, but only partly. (The country even managed to recover, spectacularly, from the government’s significant turn to demonetization earlier this year.) The rest of the growth can be attributed to India’s extremely capable tech talent that had been slowly but surely developing these past decades. Everything that Indian innovators have been working on are maturing and creating opportunities in industries like wealth management and health tech.
According to Tech in Asia, while “Bangalore, Delhi and Mumbai continue to be the main startup hubs…one-fifth of the new startups this year are from second-tier towns.” And indeed, if you look at the list below, many of the companies are situated in towns that aren’t those three aforementioned cities.
Note: Only software vendors on G2 Crowd with headquarters currently in India are included in graph.
India’s B2B tech scene is infused with the country’s advancements in artificial intelligence, digital payments, and other technologies. They are taking a hard look at verticals and excellently leveraging those trends to inform its robust startup ecosystem.
