80% of 309 exits since 2014 were writedown / acquihires!


The bigger question is, why is ecosystem not being true to itself. Who benefits from carrying over the junk?

In this sense, isn't the startup ecosystem mirroring the politics of the nation. Rhetoric over reason. Illusions over as-is picture. Superstars and their bhakts over regular guys with a purpose.

I do not know why the general consensus on awaremonk is not pro govt.

Leaving that apart. There are only two things good happening in the country

1.) Politics: Indian politics has never seen bold steps, decisions in indian politics were made either to appease somebody or to make route for one's own income. There was a drought of bold decisions and a lot of them are long pending. In the process some steps will be right and some wrong, we have to point those out but understand the right intent.

2.) Startups: India is again extremely new to innovation and experiments. Again hits and misses will be there but in the long run there is no survival without this mindset and approach. We should not have a myopic view of the ecosystem

Pro-or anti-govt is both simplistic and artificial. Critical inquiry sees does not see the boundary of govt or nation. We need to be worried if we lose that sense of questioning.

Specific challenges and the response to them is how a discussion can be structured -

Jobs

Revenue models

Successful role models of tech startups

I agree.

But data simply does not answer all the questions. All problems come with a past and a future and hence we need to have a holistic argument and not jump on conclusions.

1.) Jobs: Startups created a lot of jobs. Govt needs to present the big picture of what is the future.

2.) Coming generation of startups will think about it deeply.

3.) Freshdesk, Zoho, Postman: Tech + Revenue driven. FK, Ola, Oyo, Snapdeal: For creating industries and a lot of jobs.

one might argue that illusions in politics will do more damage, but I would like to think the other way round. Illusions of success has forces many talented folks into startups, they think that the world is gloomy but the reality is sad and dark.


Rohit pande , Have a view on many things but happy to thras Dec, 05 2016


You are right, the absence of role models means one is constantly confused of what to disrupt and how to save oneself from extinction.


The implication in politics is much deeper and sinister as one makes a clean break from governance towards illusion.

Hasn't it always been like that? Irrespective of the purpose superstars and their bhakts are always given credibility and ego boost

Suspended disbelief, the permanent state of governance.
