Startup scene in India has witnessed hyper-growth in the technology startup and software product landscape; India ranked as the fourth largest startup hub in the world with thousands of startups in the country. We brought out the Startup Watchlist column a couple of months ago and announced the newsletter. Be it an entrepreneur, an investor, a customer or someone interested in the startup space, the Startup Watchlist is your weekly dose of the best startups from India.

In the first quarter of 2015, Indian startups raised $1.7 billion from investors and of this, $295 million have gone to Mumbai based startups. Wondering who is next, and how investors are making their big bets on startups and how the technology landscape is changing the different sectors in India?


YourStory in partnership with Nexus Venture Partners , IBM and E-cell, IIT Bombay brings to you the First Startup Spotlight in Mumbai. YourStory will be hosting Startup Spotlight in Mumbai to showcase the startups that have made a mark and created businesses that investors are willing to make big bets on.
