When history reaches a turning point, there are those who watch and those who act. We at YourStory are both observers and participants in the making of new economic history. The purpose of our existence is to evaluate, expound and showcase the awesome spark of creation in every entrepreneur and changemaker.
Our passion for entrepreneurship and its resounding global resonance is only matched by the zeal to bring our peers onto a single platform for a free-flowing exchange of ideas and visions. We work from all over India to bring the best and the brightest entrepreneurs into the limelight they deserve.
The YourStory Team brings you news, stories of entrepreneurs and change-makers, funding analyses, resource pieces and the first glimpse of emerging trends from India’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, as well as profiles of great businesses and entrepreneurs from all over the world.
The YourStory team primarily works out of Bengaluru, Karnataka, but has a presence throughout India through its correspondents in English and 12 Indian languages, including Hindi, Kannada, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Urdu, Bengali, Oriya and Assamese.
What started as a small but robust group founded by Shradha Sharma in 2008 has now grown by leaps and bounds, and yet it revels in its child-like enthusiasm about the ecosystem every single day. Our content across text, video and social media is positive, vibrant, celebratory, even analytical but never cynical. It reflects who we are – the best storytellers in the country! And who doesn’t love a good story?
We have published close to 60,000 stories of entrepreneurs and change-makers and helped more than 50,000 entrepreneurs access networking and funding opportunities.
Our flagship event, TechSparks, is now in its eighth year and has become India’s biggest and most loved startup summit. We also hold other industry events such as MobileSparks and Bhasha to provide entrepreneurs in niche areas a platform for visibility, networking, funding and mentoring.
YourStory also works with some of the biggest brands worldwide, enhancing their visibility and engagement with a tech-savvy base of readers through high-quality content. Check out our offerings here.
Our mission has been to tell stories that matter, stories with heart, with drive, and that wouldn’t be possible without the passion of our team – they are the heart and soul of YourStory. They each have something that drives them to write, build, design, shoot, edit and publish these stories.
