India has emerged as the third largest start-up base and such ventures are poised to grow 2.2 times to reach 10,500 by 2020 despite a perception that the ecosystem in the country has slowed down in the last year, says a report. India is in the third position just behind US and UK, and nearly 1,400 new startups are expected by end of 2016, up by 8-10 percent from last year, revealed the “Indian Startup Ecosystem Maturing – 2016” report by Nasscom-ZINNOV. The report also finds that Bengaluru, NCR, and Mumbai continue to lead as the major startup hubs in the country.

According to the report, the number of tech startups in India is expected to grow by 10-12 percent to over 4,750 by the end of 2016. With this impetus, India will become home to over 10,500 startups by 2020, employing over 2,10,000 people, reveals the report. It added that there is a 40 percent increase in the number of active incubators and accelerators in 2016 with impetus from government and corporates. Over 30 new academic incubators have been established under the government’s ‘Startup India Stand-up India’ initiative this year, and tier-II/III cities have established 66 percent of the new incubators, it added.
