Relevance is often Connected with rarity. As a result, this First Anything – a birthday, a scientific feat or a female vice president – comes with its own weight. Whether that pressure is confirmed and the debate itself, but today we will focus on the ripple effects of India First Unicorn’s IPO: Zomato.

Food delivery startup Zomato, set to start trading public shares next week, has been hailed by journalists and industry experts as India’s largest ever technical opportunity. The company could be valued at up to 8. 8.6 billion at its public meeting, and early signs of investor interest were strong.

As my colleagues Alex Wilhelm and Anna Heim put it in their column, Zomato’s final performance will be seen by Paytm and MobiQuick, two Indian fintech unicorns will also be unveiled soon, about 100 Indian unicorns, and, of course, – centered adventure capitalists. The success of a startup can lead to more venture funding, get out of the way and, overall, highlight a landmark for growth investments between legal and regulatory tensions.

While there is ongoing pressure on Zomato not to be crushed by public markets, it is not just a baseless, pre-emptive energy release. Our on-ground reporter Manish Singh Encouraged to raise funds from the beginning of the initial phase, the engineers have religiously reported on all the signs of how they feel empowered to demand more money due to the sudden increase in demand.

A Zomato success may turn more investors to focus on the startup scene, but they will play catch-up: Indian startups have increased their record by 10.46 billion dollars in the first half of 2021, up from $ 3 billion in the same period last year. Year, and in the first half of 2019.4 5.4 billion, Data Insight platform Tracks told TechCrunch. By comparison, Indian startups raised 11 11.6 billion in 2020 as a whole.

There’s a take-way here in both life and startups, that is First Anything is hardly the result of a single decision. Mostly, if you look closely, there is a big goal along the way due to the combination of different wins, successes, failures and teenier goals. This does not remove its title as the largest tech startup to be released in India (relevant, and rare!) But it does suggest that ripple effects are not just a side effect of the financing event, but perhaps the momentum that led to the IPO in the first place.
