Meet the next big disruptors, the Tech30 startups
With its ever-increasing commitment to showcasing innovative startups from across India, TechSparks showcases the YourStory’s annual list of Tech30 companies – the most promising startups that we believe will go a long way: a belief that has stood the test of time in these past seven years.
