Mumbai, the alpha world city of India is the capital city of Maharashtra. Mumbai has the highest number of billionaires and millionaires among all cities in India. (Source: Wikipedia.) According to NASSCOM reports, Mumbai is the hub of nearly 500 startups. Investors are enamored of Mumbai. If there is any entrepreneurial endeavor whose fruits should be available with the efforts of incubators and investors, that endeavor is surely Mumbai’s entrepreneurial science. Not only do the numerous accelerators supply the stuff of thought, but they also shape the process of thought.
Here is a list of startups from Mumbai that are making it big:
The founders of TinyOwl, Gaurav Choudhary and Saurabh Goyal, dismissed forever entrepreneurial apprehensions to steal a march over competition. They launched this food ordering app in Pawai with a vision of connecting people with their food. They realized that the only way to survive is by racing ahead. Following the same train of aggressive thoughts, TinyOwl expanded to Mumbai. It went on to raise $3 million from Nexus and Sequoia Capital.

Those who neglect tomorrow repeat the mistakes of yesterday. This particularly applies to students. Embibe helps all its registered students in their preparation for tackling exams such as IIT-JEE, BITSAT etc. Embibe started in 2014. The almost extinct habit-even though the idea of relying on online test platforms doesn’t enthuse students and parents, it should be considered a necessary evil. The embarrassment factor which carrying volumes of books around entails is absent. Students can invariably look for online tutors. When it comes to online test preparation platforms, Embibe has focused on getting its product right.
