The rise of SaaS in India has been phenomenal. India’s SaaS ecosystem is forecasted to be valued at $50 billion by 2030, according to a report by Bessemer Venture Partners.

The report also depicts that India employs more than 62,000 people in the SaaS sector with selected Indian companies even outperforming their US counterparts.

As per Bain and Company, many factors are at play for the upswing such as high capital efficiency, Indian SaaS firms equipped with excellent ARR-to-funding ratios, and perfect sync in line with their global SaaS peers.

To celebrate these achievements, Freshworks for Startups, in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS), is hosting SaaS Camp, an exclusive by-invitation-only event to celebrate and shine a spotlight on the best minds in the Indian SaaS sector.
