Executive Summary

After witnessing a slowdown in 2018 due to policy uncertainty, investment activity in the Indian startup ecosystem gained momentum in Q1 2019, which has sustained over the next two quarters. 

However, there’s still a lot of uncertainty over policies such as angel tax, ecommerce policy, healthcare norms and data localisation have come as entry barriers for new startups and have deterred investments. Though issues such as angel tax have been solved to a certain extent, it still remains a problem for new investors or investments in new startups.
