Indian Tech Startup Funding Report H1 2024

In the first half of 2024 Indian startup ecosystem attracted a capital inflow worth $5.3 Bn across 504 funding deals. While funding amount was down 2% from the previous year (H1 2023), the deal count was up 7%. Meanwhile, the median ticket size declined by 8% YoY to $2.8 Mn in the first six months of 2024 but zoomed 87% from $1.5 Mn in the second half of 2023.

Unlike the VC capital-fuelled era of 2020 and 2021, investors today remain sharply focussed on supporting profitable and sustainable ventures. It is this mantra that has become the buzzword for Indian startups and the H1 2024 numbers could also be seen as a testament to the same.

Towards the end of 2023, most stakeholders in the world's third-largest startup ecosystem agreed that funding activity will begin to return to normal in the second half of 2024. Interestingly, the Indian startup ecosystem is making sluggish but consistent progress in that direction. Despite the mixed performance of Indian startups in wooing investors during the first six months of 2024, the almost flat funding numbers could be pointing at VCs’ wait-and-watch strategy before they start to deploy dry powder in droves.
