Private Equity : India's Next UNICORNS - An Exploratory Survey

12 December 2018

At present more than 260 Unicorns have emerged globally. US leads with 120+ followed by China at 75+, United Kingdom at 15+ and India at 12+

India is fast witnessing a proliferation of Unicorns with a diversified and balanced sector representation. Few years hence, we see a possibility of India having similar number of Unicorns as China today.

By 2030, India’s tech entrepreneurs are expected to create a US$ 10 trillion economy. We believe, the PE/VC community plays the most strategic role in identifying, nurturing and grooming these unique organisations. Unicorns have some common attributes – disruption, exponential growth, tech superiority and ability to multiply capital. Valuations add to these productive, but difficult to deliver attributes.

We at BDO India, in our maiden PE/VC survey, aim to capture these Unicorns & Soonicorns in India and acknowledge them today as they prep to become Decacorns & Unicorns of tomorrow, respectively.

Take our survey to help identify such emerging leaders of India. It would take approximately 10-15 minutes of your time to complete.
