With more than 50K startups, 6.3 crore MSMEs, and 60+ unicorns, India is aggressively paving its way to become the second-largest startup ecosystem after the US. For more than a decade, YourStory has played a crucial role in giving visibility and a platform to voice their journey to Indian startups. Our flagship startup-tech event, TechSparks, is one such platform.
At every TechSparks, one of the most exciting and keenly watched events is the unveiling of YourStory’s annual Tech30 startups list, a specially curated list of India’s 30 most high-potential and disruptive tech startups.
This year, we opened applications for Tech30 2021 in July. But due to the overwhelming number of requests we have received from startups keen to apply for Tech30 2021, we are now extending the application deadline to September 10, 2021.
You can now apply by September 10, 2021, to stand a chance of being recognised among a select group of 30 most promising startups from India in 2021 and get access to funding, investors, mentorship, and more.
