The Indian startup ecosystem has grown leaps and bounds over the years, taking the country to the 19th spot in the list of top 100 startup hubs of the world in 2021, with Bengaluru, Delhi-NCR and Mumbai finding place in the list of top 20 most promising startup hubs.
Out of these cities, Bengaluru is considered to be the biggest startup hub in the country, having earned the title of the world’s fastest-growing tech hub in 2021. Not only this, the city is also home to 44 unicorns out of the 107 Indian unicorns.
The state of Karnataka is home to over 9,500 DPIIT-registered tech startups and more than 4,000 active startup investors. These startups cumulatively secured a total funding of $63 Bn between 2014 to September 2022, of which 47% was accounted for by Bengaluru-based startups.
The proactive efforts and initiatives of the Karnataka government are among the factors promoting the city’s growth.
A case in point is the Bengaluru Tech Summit (BTS). With the aim to facilitate the growth of the tech and startup ecosystem and honour the ones taking the country’s growth story forward, the state government has been organising the BTS since 1998, and will be hosting its silver jubilee edition this month.
Organised by the state’s Department of Electronics, IT, BT and S&T (Information Technology, Bio Technology and Science & Technology), the summit is co-hosted by the Software Technology Parks of India (STPI).
With the theme ‘Tech4NexGen’, BTS 2022 is scheduled to be held from November 16-18, 2022 at the Bangalore Palace in Bengaluru. It will host Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the inaugural session.
