With $10.8 Bn, Bengaluru Tops Startup Funding In 2022


Bengaluru topped the startup funding chart in India with $10.8 billion in 2022. It was followed by Mumbai at $3.9 billion and Gurugram at $2.6 billion. Startups based in Delhi and Chennai registered $1.2 billion each in funding, according to data provided by Tracxn.

In 2021, Bengaluru-based startups had raised $20.8 billion in funding and Mumbai-based startups raised $5.2 billion. There were 22 unicorns in 2022 as compared to 46 in 2021.

As per the report, India started experiencing funding winter in the fourth quarter of 2021 and it has been on a declining trend since then. As a result of rising interest rates and fear of a worldwide recession, investments across all industries have been impacted.

Despite the impact on funding in the edtech sector, Byju’s has topped the list of highest funding raised in 2022. The company raised over $1.2 billion in 2022 from existing investors. This amounted to almost 50 per cent of the total funding received in the edtech sector.
