Top 10 most profitable startups in India

What are Startups?

Startups are companies that have developed something new for a change. These companies are formed by 1-3 people who focus on capitalizing upon a perceived market.

During the initial stage of the launch of startup companies are funded by the founding members but for further expansion, they have to raise funding through investors. But technically startup is more complex then that.

Why do Investors put their money in a newly formed company?

Its simple during the initial stage share in a company are sold low prices because of total capitalization is low and with an increase in time market capitalization of the company increases if the company have potential and an investor can have a 10-20x return easily. that’s why they risk their money in startups though not all startups are successful more then 90% startups are failed in 3 years. its not that simple to make profits but if you have pile of cash waiting to spend then you don’t have a problem.
