There are many compelling reasons why startups should consider expanding their business in India. The country is home to over a billion people – essentially an audience profile you don’t want to miss. India is also a country of millennials. It is home to the largest population of millennials in the world. In fact, two-thirds of its population are under the age of 35.

Millennials are also chief wage earners accounting for nearly 71% of household income in India. There is also a clear shift towards consumption economy, from a savings economy with millennials. India has never been younger, the country is in the wake of a digital dawn and ready to embrace tech innovations. And finally, the country will have the world’s largest workforce by the year 2027.
