  • Methodology


The Indian startup ecosystem has come a long way. It was, indeed, a niche segment in 2014 with just about $5.3 Bn in venture capital funding. Fast forward to the end of 2021, and the sector has amassed more than $112 Bn in total cumulative funding. Following the growth of venture capital activity in Indian startups, the participation of foreign-origin investors has also increased. Overall, Indian startup founders from fintech, deeptech, ESG and other new-age sectors are keen to pursue business collaboration and venture capital access. However, Indian startups are not well aware of the relevant events organised by public and private institutions of Japan. Around 77% of the startup founders in India were unaware of such events and did not know much about the Japanese organisations promoting startup-to-startup collaboration in India.
