5 Indian startups with international success

In India, the business world has been booming for the past few years. In this area, India in particular has excelled to the point that a number of entrepreneurs have found success on the international stage. Many of these firms have greatly increased the scope of their services.

Going international used to be a road taken by fairly established firms. Today, however, international markets are accessible sooner in a company’s lifecycle because of web-based connectivity to worldwide markets.
