India’s SaaS revenue reached $3.5 billion in the FY2020, according to a July 2020 report by NASSCOM. It revealed that the pure-play India SaaS industry has the potential to grow to $13-15 billion by 2025.

US and Chennai-based Freshworks played a huge role in developing the Indian SaaS, specifically the B2B SaaS market. Freshworks’ ready-to-go and easy-to-use products offer a 360-degree view of the customer, and offer a quick return on investment.

Earlier during an interaction with YourStory in ‘Money Matters with Shradha Sharma,’ Founder and CEO Girish Mathrubootham said that while it is important for the business to sell amid the pandemic crisis to survive, it was more important to do it with empathy.

“The message I shared with my team is ‘solve; don’t sell’. During a crisis, we have to reassure and reconnect with our customers before you can help them redesign,” he adds.

With Girish’s business outlook and guidance, Freshworks has become one of the most celebrated SaaS unicorns in India. The startup is currently valued at $3.5 billion and has a team of about 3,000 people working across 13 offices around the world.
