Another year draws to a close. Another chapter finishes. Some would say it was the best of times, some would argue it is the worst of times. Some would say that it was an age of foolishness, some would say it was the age of wisdom. Some rose to the top of headlines, some became side notes.
Money was bet, money was lost. Businesses were built, businesses were shut down. Some became heroes, some were branded villains. All in all, 2017 was different from any other year and yet was so similar to any other year.
As the last few days of this year trickle by, we at Inc42 take time to catch a breath, pause and reflect what did this year bring in for the Indian startup ecosystem? Who are the people who mattered and who are the people who were relegated to history?
Let’s take a quick detour through the memory lane of 2017 to see which brands, people and businesses dominated the news headlines – the newsmakers of 2017.
