One of the star attractions of day one of the 2022 edition of TechSparks, YourStory’s flagship startup-tech event, was the unveiling of this year’s Tech30—a specially curated list of India’s 30 most promising startups.


Shradha Sharma, Founder and CEO, YourStory, unveiled the eleventh annual edition of the Tech30 report amidst applause and cheers from an excited crowd, which included founders whose companies were selected to be a part of the Tech30 2022 list.


Unveiling the report, Shradha said Tech30 was created 11 years ago so promising startups would not have to rely on investors alone to get recognised.

"Hoping to see you from here to wherever you grow and reach, and wish you the best," said Shradha, pointing out that earlier winners included companies such as Freshworks, Chargebee, and Innovaccer that now rank among India's biggest tech companies with a global footprint.


"The startrup ecosystem is going through challenging times, and that means that we don’t have to compete, but collaborate," Shradha said. "And we will always be on your side in your future journey."


Despite the many challenges faced by entrepreneurs and startups in 2022, innovation bears a strong ray of hope. And this year’s Tech30 list is further proof of how the startup sector plays a key role in fostering innovation and disruption, as 18 of the selected companies hold patents.


The Tech30 list of startups, curated out of 1,580+ applicants, also reveals how the entrepreneurial bug has extended beyond Tier I cities.


From close to 74% last year, the share of applications from Tier I locations dropped to a little over 71% this year. While 20 Tier II and beyond locations had applications from five or more startups, 139 other locations saw applications from fewer than five startups.


The faith shown by investors is another important yardstick. While a dozen of the selected startups had marquee investors such as Sequoia Capital India and Kunal Shah (Founder, CRED), half-a-dozen were backed by Accel and Tiger Global.
