Indian Tech Startups

Two days ago a friend from in a b-school asked me to give him a list of early startups in India. I have been tracking the startup scene in India for a long time now but when he asked me to give a list then I did not have one that I could pass it on to him. Also realized that there is no pointers on the internet which I could point him to. So I sat down and put together a list of all the startups in India that I have came across ( met, heard or read) in the last few months. I am posting this list here in the hope that this is of help to someone.I would have pasted the entire list in the post itself only if wordpress would have permitted to do so.

I think the best way to share this could be to put the file on a collaborative space, I tried using numsum but the free service only allows upto 20 rows. Let me know if there is any alternate solution to put this up somewhere where it can be edited wiki style. (here is the excel sheet for this)

update: I could upload this sheet to numsum, thanks to Animesh for pointing this out. πŸ™‚ If you want to edit this sheet to add entries let me know, I will send you an numsum invite to do so.

  1. Rajan,
    A good start! Though I believe there are many more startups which have still to appear on the list. Uzanto for example comes to my mind.

    Hopefully people will fill in more info with time. Two things,

    1. I wonder what D & HR Consultants does, and can they be called “Tech” Startups.
    2. NumSum doesn’t seem to restrict rows in my case!? Why so? See if you can try it out. Additionally I’ve put it up at iRows as well.

    NumSum: http://numsum.com/spreadsheet/show/23147
    iRows: http://www.irows.com/Edit?id=18748

  2. @animesh
    Thanks animesh for pointing this out, I have uploaded to numsum.

    @ankur
    Hope it does, I am preparing , have a half baked list of VC’s in India which I will soon upload in simillar way.

  3. hi rajan,

    interesting list of companies. you certainly do get around. tagging this post and the list to my blog — will be useful exploring each of these companies individually.

  4. I too have been collating the list of startups for quite a while now. Am sure, I could also contribute a bit to the list. I too was thinking on to the similar lines of creating Startup list as dynamic as they come n’ go. For the time being. let me know, how can I add the names to the list.

  5. @Vijay
    Sent an invitate to you.

    @Piyush
    A wiki would also be a good idea. I have sent you an invite to you.

    @Ranjith
    Good effort, I will also include the list you are maintaining here.

  6. Rajan,
    Nice work. Following your blog.. since quite sometime – your posts are great.

    A couple of thoughts… if you are compiling a list of startups, I guess you should probably define what falls under your definition of an startup – (either by duration of existence in the industry, level of funding, etc. )

    Not sure if these fall under your definition of startup, but following companies are worth mentioning in mobile space –
    1. Coruscant Inc. (http://www.coruscant.co.in) – Mumbai based startup – recently working on Paymate (onlines of paypal) -founded by Probir Roy, Ajay Adiseshan
    2. Unicel Technologies (www.uniceltechnologies.com) – founder Vinay Aggarwal and his brother – bangalore based
    3. NGPay (wwww.ngpay.com) – mobile commerce
    4. And you would have probably heard about coolpool, yaari.com and others in MobileMonday Delhi event.

  7. Hi Alok,
    All the companies you mentioned are startups , I have no specific definion. I have included all the tech startups starting right from the idea stage to the ones that are funded & operational till they reach the IPO stage.

    My focus though has been on the early stage companies.

    I will add the ones that you mentioned.

  8. Hi Rajan,

    You have a great list of startup firm names. But as a record could you forward me the complete list of Start-ups till as of date – techie or non techie to me.

    It will be great help!

    Thanks!

    Cheers!
    Gautam.

  11. http://www.discussdeal.com

    This is a first step in our plans to launch multiple services in the
    fast growing Indian Retail sector. We thought the first step will be to
    first reach out to our customers and then gradually launch services to
    them through our ongoing initiatives to tie up with Indian Retail
    Players.

    Discuss Deal is a forum for India, designed just for us to share
    information about Deals that we see and find in our everyday lives. We
    have taken care that we build an informal kind of atmosphere in the
    community and at the same time encourage and recognise the efforts of
    our friends when they contribute to Value deals every day.

    Would appreciate if you took out some time and visited the website.
    Also, if you found worthy, then write a blog on it on your blog site.

    regards,
    Saurabh (http://www.linkedin.com/pub/0/903/138)

  13. Please include our Startup at http://www.adhysteria.com

    Adhysteria.com was born because we saw a need for a place where the community could come together and help one another out. A site which would enable everyone to find their basic day to day requirements in an efficient and simple manner. Community members can come here to find a house to live, a job, make new friends who share their interests, get an audience for their upcoming performance, trade anything else that they might want or have to offer or help out someone in need.

    We try to keep things simple and fun. We want people to enjoy their daily activities and we think Adhysteria.com is a way of doing that.

  17. Rajiv and Kinchit ur idea of e-commerce advertising is good, but to get more clients and people into this website requires some more genuine information like your contact details and try to provide some genuine examples or a tour in ur website for a person to search and how he can request to a client.

    And mostly important is your contact details , that indicates you idea is genuine and confidence on the idea.

    And think ,like a new person visited your website, or if u visit a new website, how r u going to believe, by just viewing the idea , you are not going to spend time, unless/until u get confidence on the website and confirming that the website,idea and the persons who are implementing this idea.
    I recently staring thinking of new idea and looking for new ideas to start/implement new ideas ,so i came across this website and i have seen your webpage, this is what i feel, the idea/info provided by me may be useful/good /bad or i may be wrong.

  34. How do you do? http://ederyuajaba.blog.free.fr/ preteen pics model The sad thing about Mandingo is that, although women go crazy on his size, he always has to fuck from a distance. So in the bigger segments of cock length, it’s actually a matter of trading pelvis slamming for dick luring qualities. I’m glad puberty just left me a pelvis slamming size! That it’s quite close is the best thing…

  35. Needed to compose you a tiny note to finally thank you very much
    yet again for your personal splendid methods you have discussed above.
    It is strangely open-handed with people like you to
    provide publicly all that a number of people would
    have marketed as an electronic book to generate some bucks for their own end, primarily now that you could possibly have tried it if
    you ever wanted. These inspiring ideas likewise acted
    like a fantastic way to know that the rest have the same dreams really
    like my personal own to see a whole lot more concerning
    this problem. I’m sure there are thousands of more enjoyable
    times in the future for many who check out your blog.
