2019 is almost coming to an end and so as this decade. This decade changed the vision and perception of billions. The reason why I am saying this is because the figures are saying so. India is the third on the list of World’s biggest startups ecosystems. Slowly the time is going when youth use to say that after graduation, they want to do the job. Now people are taking more interest in doing things on their own. This is why the startups are growing and people are becoming independent and creative. No doubt the unemployment rate of our country and job security are also big concerns. But people with a positive approach taking a step in the right direction. The last 10 years for the startups were successful and the way the founders of startups are impressing investors and getting funding is commendable. Check out the top most funded Indian startups of the decade.
