Over the last nine months, the budget hotel brand, which has a headcount of 4,700, has ventured into Malaysia, China and Britain. Next comes the Bengaluru-headquartered wellness start-up Cure.Fit which has four offerings—no-equipment gyms, health food, yoga and meditation centres, and primary care. The company just raised $120 million from existing investors and acquired premium gym chain Fitness First in a deal worth $30-$35 million, LinkedIn said.
The company to occupy the third position on the list is dunzo.in, which is also headquartered in Bengaluru. Dunzo has the distinction of being Google’s first direct start-up investment in India, LinkedIn said. The other companies on the LinkedIn “Top Startups List” for India are Rivigo, Digit Insurance, Little Black Book, Republic World, The Minimalist, Razorpay, Innov8 Coworking, Schbang, Acko General Insurance, Treebo Hotels, InCred, Jumbotail, Udaan.com, UpGrad.com, InterviewBit, Shuttl, and Meesho. In preparing the list, LinkedIn measured the start-ups based on four pillars—employment growth, engagement, job interest and attraction of top talent—between July 1, 2017 and June 30, 2018.
