Bengaluru may be India’s startup hub, but Chennai is the SaaS capital of India. No surprises there with companies like FreshWorks (previously Freshdesk), Zoho, and Indix taking the limelight. But, over the years, the city has seen the birth of numerous startups across sectors such as manufacturing, fintech, and others. The potential of Chennai’s startup ecosystem has led to the creation of several active mentor organisations like The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE), CII Startupreneurs, IIT Alumni Clubs, and Nasscom’s Million Dollar startup programme. It is estimated that Tamil Nadu alone has over 30 incubators with a fraction of them present in college campuses of IIT, VIT, etc.
