[Infographic] Mumbai Startup Pulse: 49% are revenue generating, 34% profit making


TechSparks is YourStory’s flagship event whose fifth edition we concluded last month (top 30 companies that presented). This multi city event has city editions before going to Bangalore for the Grand Finale. One of the city events was in Mumbai where more than 300 participants from the startup ecosystem (out of which ~50% would be entrepreneurs) turned up. We had some questions for them and from what they responded, we’ve come up with an infographic which has some interesting insights into the Mumbai ecosystem.
