The GSER 2023 confirms India’s continued growth as a startup nation. The nation has two cities in the top 30 GSER 2023 global rankings and one in the runners-up list, all moving up at least two places from the 2022 report. Mumbai had particularly high growth, climbing an impressive five places due in part to an increase of 60% in the number of exits over $50 million and a jump in unicorns from six to 15.

To create the 2023 rankings, we measured six Success Factors in each ecosystem:

  • Performance
  • Funding
  • Connectedness
  • Market Reach
  • Knowledge
  • Talent & Experience

Each of these factors is assessed and awarded a score of 1 to 10, with 1 being the lowest and 10 being the highest. For more information, please see the Methodology.

Here are the top Indian startup ecosystems.
