India’s entrepreneurial activity has witnessed unprecedented growth and evolution and has contributed significantly to the nation’s economic development. It is the world’s third largest source of start-ups and was ranked the second most entrepreneurial country in the world ahead of large economic powerhouses such as the United States, China, and the UK. The Indian start-up ecosystem witnessed exponential growth between 2015 and 2021, recording a 9X increase in the number of investors; a 7X increase in the total funding of Start-ups; a 7X increase in the number of incubators.
Entrepreneurs in India have opened new avenues of wealth creation, provided consumers with new products and services, and generated employment.

About IIT Delhi
The Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) is one of the 5 initial IITs established for training, research and development in science, engineering, and technology in India. Established as College of Engineering in 1961, the Institute was later declared as an Institution of National Importance under the “Institutes of Technology (Amendment) Act, 1963” and was renamed as “Indian Institute of Technology Delhi”. It was then accorded the status of a Deemed University with powers to decide its own academic policy, conduct its own examinations, and award its own degrees.
Since its inception, over 48,000 students have graduated from IIT Delhi in various disciplines including Engineering, Physical Sciences, Management, and Humanities & Social Sciences. Of these, nearly 5,070 received PhD degrees. The rest obtained a Master’s Degree in Engineering, Science, and Business Administration. These alumni today work as scientists, technologists, business managers, and entrepreneurs. There are several alumni who have moved away from their original disciplines and have taken to administrative services, active politics or are with NGOs. In doing so, they have contributed significantly to the building of this nation and to industrialisation around the world.
