According to a survey by Startup Genome, a policy advising and research group for public and commercial organizations, the ratio of startups has increased significantly in numerous Indian cities. In comparison to 2021, Delhi rose 11 spots, stepping into the top 30 for the first time at 26. Bengaluru moved up one position from the previous year to number 22.

The same five ecosystems remain at the top of the list in 2020 and 2021, but Beijing has dropped one spot, with Boston taking its old position at No. 4. Silicon Valley is ranked first, with New York City and London tied for second place. Seoul has moved into the top ten global ecosystems for the first time, moving up six places from 16 in 2021 and 20 in 2020.

According to Startup Genome’s research, China’s ecosystems have declined in the charts, owing to a proportional reduction in early-stage financing in contrast to other ecosystems.

“India has experienced a sharp increase in the number of major exits and early-stage rounds, as well as a significant increase in Ecosystem Value.” “The country created 44 unicorns in 2021, and exits increased to $14 billion and a 10- fold increase over 2020” according to the research.

Bengaluru was joined in the top 40 by Delhi and Mumbai. This movement is being supported by ecosystem-creation activities and startup-friendly legislation.

The influence of government rules and regulations is being felt in Beijing. China will tighten down on corporations in 2021 over concerns such as anti- competitiveness and data privacy. When the Chinese government went after its education and technology industry in July and tightened restrictions on offshore initial public offerings in December, international investors suffered.

In 2021, China had a reduction in major exits of over $50 million, notably in early-stage investment, despite a spike in exits of over $1 billion in Beijing and Shenzen. In terms of venture capital raised and rounds completed in 2021, Bengaluru outpaced both Beijing and Shanghai.

Both Chennai and Pune have risen in the rankings as a result of India’s recent achievements. Freshworks, a commercial software firm based in Chennai, received a $1 billion exit. Mumbai is no longer classified as an emerging ecosystem. Three $1 billion exits (including Nykaa’s $7 billion value at IPO) and six unicorns aided the move.

According to Bloomberg, China remains a startup powerhouse, with venture investment exceeding $130 billion in 2021, over 50% more than in 2020.
