Funding is very crucial for startups at growth stage to scale-up the business from a limited set of users, customers to a greater audience. Availability of ample venture capital at this stage in the form of Series A and B rounds ensures optimal growth of not just one startup, but the entire startup ecosystem.
The contribution of the Indian growth stage ecosystem to the total capital invested in the Indian startups between 2014 to 2018 is comparatively lower than that in China. For India, the contribution is at 23%, whereas in China it is 28%. The share of funding for growth stage startups is higher in emerging ecosystems such as India, China and Southeast Asia rather than developed economies like the United States. In the US, the percentage share of growth-stage funding to the overall investments in startups is 31.2%.
