A Business Standard article quotes Venture Intelligence data on investments & exits in startups across cities in India:
According to Venture Intelligence data, the failure rate among start-ups in Chennai between 2010 and 2014 was one per cent. The rates in Bengaluru and the NCR were six per cent and seven per cent, respectively.
Arun Natarajan, Founder, Venture Intelligence, said Chennai had higher resilience in the business-to-business (B2B) and software as a service (SaaS) businesses and that the city's start-ups had a clear focus on the business and revenue models. "Chennai does not follow the me-too concept," he said.
Bengaluru and the NCR have a head start in large enterprises and these cities have investor communities willing to experiment with new ideas. Investors in Chennai, on the other hand, are more conservative and bet on good ideas.
