Consumer internet startups retained their dominance in this year's list, and showcase the emergence of healthcare, wellness, and e-learning startups that are embracing artificial intelligence to offer accessible medical, wellness, and upskilling solutions for consumers, LinkedIn said in a statement.
"India is the world's second-largest startup ecosystem... The list is symbolic of the thriving ecosystem, and features companies that are vanguards of key trends in e-learning, healthcare, and financial services," LinkedIn India Managing Editor Adith Charlie said. He added that the startup ecosystem continues to flourish by fulfilling employment needs across various industries in the midst of the economic slowdown.
"Our data shows that these 25 companies collectively created about 18,000 jobs in the past year, and are expected to create more than 19,000 new employment opportunities in the coming 12 months," he said. Nearly 50 percent of the companies on this year's 'Top Startups List for India' are Bengaluru-based.
The startups list was based on four key pillars -- employment growth, engagement with the company and its current employees, job interest, and attraction of top talent -- and focused on period between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019.
