Since January 2015, more than 1,000 Indian startup companies attracted funding from international investors, with private equity firms making up nearly 98 percent of new investment, according to data from Trak.in, a local business news and opinion company. Private equity firms - led by Alibaba, SoftBank, and Steadview Capital Management - invested a total of about $9.5 billion during the period.

  • The highest funded startup was Ola Cabs - a car rental company in Mumbai, Delhi - which reported $1.2 billion in funding, followed by e-commerce giants like Flipkart, Snapdeal and Paytm. 
  • Bangalore, the startup capital of India, attracted one third of the investment during the period, or nearly $3 billion. Other cities, including Delhi, Gurgaon, and Mumbai, each attracted a total investment in startups of more than $1 billion.
