Bangalore Startup Ecosystem

Bangalore is one of the world’s fastest-growing tech ecosystems. Many of the world’s largest tech companies, such as Amazon, Google, and Facebook, have a presence there – mainly  Research and Development centers.   

Highly developed infrastructure and a high number of tech talent make the city India and South Asia’s startup capital. Bangalore has the highest concentration of colleges in India, where thousands of new engineers, developers, and designers graduate each year.   

According to Startup Blink, more than 1,000 startups currently operate in Bangalore. The most prominent industries for those startups are transportation, education, and e-commerce, with 364 education startups alone. One of the most prominent education startups is Quizizz, which launched in 2015 and has 65 million active users. 

VCs are looking to India thanks to the growing talent pool and untapped domestic markets. A majority of those funds make their way to Bangalore. In 2021, Bangalore’s startups raised $18.6 billion in funding, putting the city ahead of Bejing and Shanghai. The city produced 16 unicorns in a record-breaking year.

The government also invests in upcoming businesses and has initiatives to promote Bangalore as a startup hub. The presence of numerous incubators and accelerator programs also plays a significant role in the success of Bangalore’s startup ecosystem. Incubators such as Bangalore Alpha Lab (BAL) offer founders mentorship, meet-ups, education sessions, and introductions to investors.

GrowthMentor was built upon the idea that every situation is unique, so generic courses and blog posts just don’t cut it sometimes.

To actually solve your issue you need to connect with someone who’s “been there done that” and have a back-and-forth conversation about the particular roadblock you are facing at this very moment.

Here are some tips.

  • Come into this with realistic expectations. They’re mentors, not magicians.
  • Ask your mentor if they’d be ok with you recording your screen with Loom
  • Give contextual information to help paint the picture of your current situation.
  • Growth mentors will be asking you lots of questions, answer them as openly as possible.
  • Don’t be afraid to push the boundaries of question-asking.
  • Be inquisitive. Stories are gold.
  • Don’t feel pressure, just relax.
  • Try to form mental patterns, especially if you speak with multiple mentors.
  • Embrace alternative views. Ask the mentors to challenge your assumptions.
  • Be friendly. If you’re likable, the mentors will be your biggest supporters (even after the call is over).

Use dynamic filters to find the perfect mentor for you with the right expertise, language, time zone, and availability you need.
