The end of June has also marked the end of the first half of calendar year 2021 and the investor confidence towards Indian startups is at its all time high. Between January to June 2021, the total capital inflow in Indian startups stands at $10.8 Bn across 614 funding deals. An important point to note is that both the half yearly funding amount and deal count are at their historic peak. Compared to the previous year (i.e. H1 2020) the total funding amount has surged 2.1x whereas compared to H2 2020 the funding amount has increased by 72%.
Irrespective of both usual and optimistic scenarios, there is a very strong probability that the Indian startup ecosystem will witness a record high venture capital inflow by the end of calendar year 2021.
