Since the start of the millennium; the advent of the information technology (IT) era and more recently, the digital revolution with Industry 4.0; India witnessed a significant rise in number of tech-startups due to various macro-environmental factors. These startups have come largely in e-commerce, healthcare, financial technologies, education, travel, artificial intelligence (AI) and customer services sectors.
