Sharing his thoughts, Jain said, “The Indian startup ecosystem has seen exponential growth in the past few years. In 2022, India emerged as the 3rd largest ecosystem for startups globally. I firmly believe that merely investing in startups is insufficient to propel their growth. To achieve this, startups must be nurtured and supported with the appropriate resources and knowledge. Supporting startups not only creates significant employment opportunities but also helps boost the country's overall economy. Our first Elevate Summit 23 was an excellent opportunity for us to provide a conducive environment and guide our investee companies in utilizing their resources effectively.”
