Go Global! The tremendous potential of Indian entrepreneurs and investors to grow in the global market!

They say that a vision is the energy that drives an entrepreneur and makes them to explore, challenge, insist and determine to succeed. While there are always challenges that companies face while expanding globally. One top reason is that the business model for operating in every country varies. While we are all aware of the startups that have grown around the world (mostly through a series of acquisitions). Indian investors as well as start ups have been valued at several billion dollars. Unfortunately, we are still to capture a lot of users and markets across the world. 

A start-up that is present globally can generate multiple revenues from international markets, with multiple countries of course. The current and the future market is for the Indian startups who are also operating out of their homeland and catering to global markets. While investors are becoming very specific which idea to invest in, investing in ventures that have a presence all over the globe is something that is capturing their interest. While we are hearing the news of investors’ funds drying in India, a bunch of global startups, have raised money from Indian investors. The start-ups originating in India mostly pursue large market opportunities within the country. A lot of founders fail to understand the need to design ventures that cater to the global markets for large scale advantages.

3 top lessons for the Indian entrepreneurs to go global:
