TechSparks 2019: Unveiling Tech30 - YourStory’s list of high-potential tech startups in India
This year marks the tenth edition of TechSparks - YourStory's flagship event that brings together the who's who of the industry under one roof. It’s also the time when we reveal our tenth batch of Tech30 companies. Every year, we proudly present a carefully chosen list of 30 young and promising startups that we believe have the potential to be major disruptors.
The theme for TechSparks 2019 is ‘India 2025: Inclusive, Future-ready, and Intelligence-led’, and we believe that this year’s Tech30 companies will enable India to move closer to becoming ready for the future and intelligence-led. Harnessing technologies such as AI, machine learning, data analytics, and blockchain, these 30 companies are looking to solve problems across sectors and disrupt the market with new, innovative ideas.
These top 30 startups were selected from around 2,500 applications. They were chosen by a jury comprising veterans from the startup ecosystem, and YourStory's team of senior editorial and research staff. The verdict was based on multiple factors, including the potential impact of technology, the team, adoption and traction, scalability, addressable market, and revenue model.
"The talent we see in India continues to amaze and inspire us. I ask you to read all the profiles in detail and get to know these passionate entrepreneurs, because some of them will go on and define the narrative in the coming years," said Shradha Sharma, Founder and CEO of YourStory.
No surprises then that our latest Tech30 batch features startups that are innovating in a range of fields including AI, SaaS, and a lot of startups working for the Tier II and III cities.
