The start-up story continues to grow tremendously in India. With many emerging start-ups in our country, there is promise and hope for a lot of product innovators to find opportunities for themselves as well as for many others by creating great products and services within the Indian market. According to this Economic Times article, where Ravi Gururaj, chairman of the Nasscom Product Council, has mentioned that the strategy of targeting domestic players will benefit these start-ups, as many international rivals still do not properly understand the nuances of India. Most of these product start-ups are located in South India, mainly driven by the availability of skilled engineers.
