When we need anything, we sit back and Google it. Well, be it any need, it is efficiently satisfied by the internet. Internet has penetrated in our lives in such a way that we are wholly dependent on that. Since the internet is versatile, people are levering the internet for various purposes and internet is conveniently fulfilling them with few clicks. Even though internet penetration in India is as low as 20% despite this fact, India stands at the third position for the largest population of Internet-equipped inhabitants across the world. Going deeper in statistics, it is expected to see 500 million plus internet users by 2017 including 314 million mobile internet users.
One of the many things that internet has paved the way for is start-ups. Seeing these trends, NASSCOM labelled 2015 as the year for technology start-ups in India. When it comes to start-ups, India ranked third globally with 4200 plus start-ups. 2015 saw 100% jump in the start-ups. The funding was also doubled to $5 billion out of which more than $700 million were invested in early-stage financings. However, in the year 2016, Indian start-ups have dropped sharply in the first three months of this year. The investments deals fell by 35% during Jan-Feb-March of 2016 and it is worrisome!
To throw some light on the importance of the internet in our lives and how we can continue the strong growth in internet access, smartphones, and data usage and thereby pull back investors is something The Indian Internet Day, 2016 will focus on.
