2017 has been an amazing year for the Udaipur startup ecosystem. There are some success stories now emerging. We recently expanded our earlier article about upcoming startups from Udaipur and the response was amazing. It also prompted us to handpick some of the growing companies from other startup hubs and here, we bring to you, Udaipur.
When it comes to startups in India we have a slew of success stories – Snapdeal, Zomato, Delhivery, ShopClues, Paytm among others. Founded by Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal Snapdeal raised over $1 billion in this year alone and is now valued at over $3 billion
Since its launch in 2010, Snapdeal has come a long way – it now has more than 25 million users with about 50,000 sellers on its website and 40 fulfilment centres across 15 cities in the country.
Zomato has gone on to achieve global success and recently announced $60 million at a post-money valuation of USD ~660 million. At present it employs over 900 people across 100 plus cities in 18 countries. Noida based Paytm recently surpassed the volume of IRCTC and touched $600 million Gross Merchandise Value (GMV) last month. E-commerce dedicated logistics startup Delhivery closed a $35 million round of funding in October this year.
Besides the above startups who have graduated from starting up phase, below goes the list of 3 Udaipur based startups who bloomed in 2017.
#1. UdaipurEbazar.com : now became UdaipurFoodBazar.com : This website was started with the small vision to deliver products to the local area from store to customer. But as the time passed away the idea got more innvotions into it and became the leader in online food delivery and goods like flowers, chocolates and other items. Whether they started from product delivery and now they are delivering food. But Udaipur people accepted the innovation and now they are 25 team members serving Udaipur with their fabulous services.
