  India added over 1300 new tech startups in 2019, making the country the third-largest startup ecosystem in the world according to the Ministry of Commerce, Government of India. In 2021, amidst a debilitating second wave, India has added 14 new unicorns as against 11 in 2020 and 7 in 2019. With respect to funding, the first half of 2021 comfortably eclipsed (with $10.8 Bn ) the previous historic half-yearly peak of H2 2017, when $7 Bn was raised by Indian startups. The relevance of startup exchange with India is steadily increasing globally and specifically to the AsiaBerlin network. Please find the highlights of last year’s event here.
