So what are the best startup hubs in India? Do you have the idea of starting a new business? Would you like to find the best city for your startup in India? Or just simply are you curious about them? Insider Monkey has given the answer where to start a new company in the world.
It is exhilarating to work for a startup. It is very exciting as well because you de something new that hasn’t been created. You can always find a market that has been left untouched. The opportunities are unlimited in these days and their number is continually growing. There are so many areas across India that have grown so much over the past few years, that it’s hard to pick just ten, which is unusual for most countries, but, obviously, not for a nation as large and diverse.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three items from their list.
The first place is Kochi. Once a mere tourist trap on the shore of the Ocean, Kochi has turned into a major business location. The Startup Village kicked off back in 2012 and is now playing an important role in the progress the region has made. The incubator is one of the best in the country, supporting hundreds of start-ups so far, with some of the most notable names coming from here being CAT Entertainments, Zero Bulb, Addictive Innovations, and Unihalt, to name just a few. For the most part, it’s startups that are focusing on software products that are making it big in Kochi. Startup Village provides members the needed workspace, high-speed Internet, as well as legal and intellectual property services. Most importantly, however, the companies have access to high-profile investors that will hopefully take an interest in them and decide to share some of the wealth. The second place is Kolkata. Located in the eastern area of India, Kolkata is one of the main commercial and financial hubs in the zone. There are many local conglomerates operating their business from here, including Coal India Limited, National Insurance Company, Britannia Industries and more. The city is particularly attractive because not only is it a major commercial and military port, but it is also the only city in eastern India to have an International airport. With a population of some 4.7 million, Kolkata is also one of the most populous cities in India, also being named as the City of Joy. Many start-ups have been attracted by the area and are currently growing from here, including companies such as Taxmantra, which offers other startups tax-related advice, or Mihup’s Nectar, the company behind personal mobile assistant Nectar. The last place I am mentioning for today is Pune. India is a great place for all sorts of startups. Pune, in particular, has been good for companies working in e-commerce, education, marketing and advertising. There are over 350 corporate innovation centers here. Compared to other locations, the infrastructure is newer and better, which attracts even more startups looking to put roots somewhere.
