Indian tech startups have raised $10.8 billion in the last two months, a report by business intelligence firm Tracxn reported. The report further revealed that 256 deals were cracked in July and August 2021.
The Indian tech startup ecosystem had raised $6.5 billion across 412 deals in the April to June quarter of 2021. The ecosystem has raised $5.7 billion across 432 deals in the January to March quarter, the report added.
This means that even though fewer startups raised money in the first two months of the third quarter (July 1 to September 1), the funding amount increased significantly.
In August alone, Indian startups raised $3.2 billion across 115 rounds. Seventeen companies were acquired in the same month.
As usual, Bengaluru cracked the most number of deals.
