Indian Startup Funding Activity : Jan 2018 – Now

Indian-startup-funding-activity-jan-to-june-2018

Ever since the launch of Startup India program by the Government of India, there has been a spurt in the growth of startup entities. It is true that many of these startups have failed to cross the threshold of success. But the program has been able to infuse entrepreneurship and a sense of optimism among the youth. A further boost has been provided by the recent improvement in India’s ease of doing business ranking and the global startup ecosystem comparison chart.

Startups are important for any economy as they help boost economic activity, generate employment, bring in technological enhancement, and also infuse competitiveness in the economy. But the most crucial factor for their survival and growth is funding. So, let’s have a glance at the overall startup funding scenario and the startups that have raised funds from January, 2018 to now.

Overall Startup Investment Scenario

With more than 1000 startups added in 2017 taking the total number of startups to 5,200, India is now the world’s third-largest startup ecosystem (as per Nasscom startup Report). The year 2017 saw a record $13.7 billion being invested in Indian startups across 820 deals, which is significantly higher than the investments made in 2016 and 2015.

However, the number of startup deals being funded in 2016 and 2015 was higher than that of 2017. In Q1 of 2018 (Jan to March), the number of deals was 42% higher than the previous quarter, i.e., Q4 2017. But it is 19% lower than the number of deals funded in Q1 of 2017.

As far as seed funding is concerned, we can see a recovery as the number of deals in seed stage has increased by 43% as compared to Q4 2017, although it is still 18% lower than that in Q1 2017. A recovery can also be observed in Series A stage funding, as the number of deals has grown by 22% than that in Q4 2017.

The maximum number of funding deals have taken place in the Fintech and Healthtech sections. The tech startups in the enterprise application and service space have been able to get $269 million funding across 33 deals. So far, Bengaluru has been able to retain the top position for Indian tech startups, followed by Delhi/NCR, Mumbai, and Hyderabad.
