We met with Paul Gerard D'Souza, Director of Founders Cube. Who's been working in the industry for the past 7 years and talked a little about how the city ranks amongst the top startup capitals of the world.
India’s Silicon Valley is the world’s most dynamic city.
Bengaluru has topped a ranking of 131 world cities based on their ability to change, innovate, and adjust to constantly evolving circumstances. Hyderabad, which topped last year, is in second place this time.
The ranking was published by investment management firm Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL)
(Jan. 15) and it tracked a wide array of metrics to assess socio-economic and commercial real estate momentum including a city’s GDP, population, corporate headquarters, foreign direct investment, rent absorption, transparency and more.
“Bengaluru…has an established reputation worldwide for the design and development of technology and electronics. Along with attracting many international companies, it has a vibrant startup culture; it is home to five of India’s eight unicorns (companies valued over US$1 billion),” JLL’s research stated.
The city houses the headquarters for India’s largest IT outsourcing firms such as Infosys and Wipro and new internet startups like ride-hailing app Ola and on-demand grocer BigBasket. It is also the India hub for a bunch of global tech firms, including IBM, Microsoft, Amazon, Apple, and Salesforce."
