India’s Startup Environment

2021 was simply an incredible year for Indian startups!

The startup ecosystem bounced back in more ways than one from the Covid-induced-impact it experienced in 2020.

Here are just a couple of mind-blowing stats:

  • 42 unicorns added in 2021, 3.5x from 2020
  • $24.1B in funding, 3x from 2020

In addition to this funding and valuation growth, India has also seen four decacorns (valuation >$10B) so far — Flipkart, Paytm, Byju’s, and Oyo, with Paytm’s parent company One 97 Communications going public in November 2021.
