Young Turks: Experts discuss India's startup evolution

Updated : June 17, 2020 11:24 PM IST

Search for value, that's been the mantra for Young Turks show over the last two decades. The show was started as an experiment to focus on younger entrepreneurs, new ideas and emerging Indian brands.

We thought this would be a series that would last 13 weeks. However, it took a life of its own and is today, perhaps, the world’s longest running show on startups and entrepreneurship.

Through the course of the show, Young Turks has seen the startup economy evolve. The ecosystems are far more diverse than they were 18 years ago. Young Indian entrepreneurs have leveraged the power of technology to create sharp B2C and B2B brands across a wide range of sectors.

Startups have not only created new categories, markets and niches, they have also helped formalise and organise sectors that have largely been fragmented. Many startups are building for India and many are using the learnings from India to build for the world.

The global aspiration of young Indian entrepreneurs has been an interesting trend to track, along with the focus on ideas to address the needs of the large middle India opportunity.
