In 2020 alone, there were 11 new unicorn startup companies in the country, with over 41,000 startups in the country officially recognized by the government.

Prime Minister Modi also adds that many of the startup companies in the country are "self-reliant" and able to survive globally amid the pandemic.

“When large companies struggled to survive globally, amid the pandemic, startups powered India’s drive for being self-reliant. Startups stood up to meet different demands during the pandemic. From e-grocery to e-health, education to e-commerce, startups took care of everything and they are not just restricted to metros anymore. Startups powered India’s drive for being self-reliant amid the pandemic when major companies were thinking about survival," Modi said.
