India's coolest start-ups 2019

Bt coolest start-ups 2019

Business Today invites promising start-ups to apply for its annual Coolest Start-Ups edition where every year, we feature a handful of start-ups solving real problems.

Business Today started identifying start-ups more than a decade ago in 2007. Over the years, BT has spotted and featured companies that have gone on to become unicorns - or companies with over a billion dollars of valuation. BT featured Flipkart, when it was just starting up and was only an online book retailer. The Coolest Start-ups also picked companies such as Shopclues (another unicorn now), Oyo, Droom, and Hike among others. All of these start-ups have grown multiple times since the year they were featured.

The winners, or start-ups we feature, are chosen by a jury consisting mostly venture capitalists.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Companies that have been incorporated on or after Jan 1, 2015 can apply.
  • Companies that applied in previous years (but were not in the final BT listing) can apply again, subject to having incorporated after Jan 1, 2015.
  • Subsidiaries and joint ventures are not eligible.
