Launching StartupBharat: stories of innovation from beyond the big cities of India


StartupBharat is an attempt to shine the spotlight on startups coming up in places beyond the metros, on innovation happening in smaller cities and towns across India, or should we say Bharat?

So far, startups have mostly been synonymous with Bengaluru, Delhi, Mumbai and Hyderabad. Maybe Chennai and Pune too, but that's about it. The fact is, entrepreneurs are innovating all across India - from Bhilwara to Shillong, Srinagar to Thanjavur, and everywhere in between and beyond.


These are startups with solid, scalable and monetisable ideas.

They're solving real problems that will impact a large part of our population.

These are businesses bringing the essence of innovation to every sector - from agritech and edtech to healthtech, fintech and so many more.

These are real solutions created using new-age technologies.

These are startups that investors must evaluate if we truly believe that technology can create a better future for us.

For the past 10 years, we have been bringing stories from all across the country, and many of you have told us why not give more emphasis on startups from small towns? So here it is...StartupBharat just for you. A place where we write about a new breed of entrepreneurs who risk everything to make sure their ideas became real businesses.

With StartupBharat, we continue down that road to discover the next big wave of entrepreneurs and change-makers of India.

Join us as we feature these bravehearts from all over India. If you know any yourself, tell them about us in the comments section below.
