India is fast becoming home to start-up companies focused on high growth areas such as mobility, e-commerce and other vertical specific solutions, thereby creating new markets and driving innovation. Indian companies are gaining a stronger foothold and expanding their international presence by investing overseas for acquiring regional and global reach.
