Top 10 Indian Startups and how they took off
The year 2015 was a definitive year for the Indian internet industry. As the economy continued to grow at a healthy 6-7%, the sluggish Chinese economy meant investors are looking at India with renewed interest. Nobody cashed in bigger than the e-commerce players.

Experts believe that while the Indian e-commerce market is currently pegged at $5 billion, the figure might leap to as much as $40-50 billion by 2020. A 2015 PwC report even states that Tier 2 and 3 cities have seen 30% to 50% rise in transactions.
