Five-year-old hospitality start-up OYO, health and wellness firm Cure.Fit, and on-demand delivery service dunzo.in are among the top 25 companies that made it to the list of the most sought after start-ups in India released by LinkedIn in September.
The list revealed that Bengaluru has emerged as a major hub for start-ups to rise and shine. Out of the 25 companies on the list, 11 are headquartered in Bengaluru, seven in Mumbai, three in Gurugram and two each in New Delhi and Pune. In the list from the Microsoft-owned professional networking platform, B2B (business-to-business) companies make up 50 per cent of the list whereas 20 per cent of the companies - Nineleaps, Zapr Media Labs, BrowsterStack, SigTuple and Exadatum—are deep technology-based. Topping the first edition of LinkedIn’s India list is Gurugram-headquartered OYO which is already India’s largest hotel network with more than 100,000 rooms in 230 cities—compared to Marriott’s 23,000 and Taj Hotels’ 17,000, LinkedIn said in a blog post.
