Hurun India founder and chief researcher Anas Rahman Junaid said, “India’s start-up ecosystem has slowed, primarily fuelled by lack of investment into start-ups despite the recent stock market record highs. Another factor is that founders from India produced more offshore unicorns than any other country, co-founding 109 unicorns outside of India compared with 67 in India.”

“Of the unicorns founded outside of India, significantly all were in the US (95), led by the Bay Area, with four in the UK, three in Singapore and two in Germany. While it’s encouraging to see the rise of Krutrim, India’s first AI unicorn, there remains a substantial gap when compared to the US and China, which lead with 60 and 37 AI unicorns, respectively,” he explained.
