We are thrilled to present the first edition of the Elevation Founder Pulse, where we strive to decipher the essence of what it means to be an entrepreneur in India in 2023.

Founders today are deluged with a multitude of contrasting signals and information. Our interactions with them revealed one consistent theme - uncertainty. Therefore, we set out to capture the mood of India’s startup scene from the people driving it in this first-of-its-kind initiative in India.

The Elevation Founder Pulse 2023 is fueled by insights from our survey of 250+ founders across stages and sectors on aspects ranging from the fundraising landscape, business outlook, and operational challenges to public market dynamics and recruitment & culture.

Founders across the board are united in their belief that there is no better time to build in India than now – a sentiment we couldn’t agree more with. The confidence in the India story and our economic fundamentals have never been stronger.

We are grateful to all the founders who shared their first-hand perspectives and helped construct this comprehensive report serving as a benchmark for tracking industry trends and guiding strategic decisions.
