Closing Key Note:

Most of the western and US startups have clear Idea and vision about overall Product Development Life Cycle.

In comparison to India, these startups tend to immediately derive Product Market Fit before anything else. Especially, US startups are more rigorously following the Lean approach in building the right product for the right audience. The allocation of budget in technology and marketing makes them more different from Indian Startups. Most of the US startups have founder with technical or startup background. Also, US startups tend to take utmost care for creating great User Experience.

Reason behind such differences are the pedagogy style and easy access to a mature ecosystem;  practical and upgraded education system. There is no doubt, the above scenario is changing rapidly as Indian startup ecosystem is improving. As a result, we see more and more quality and successful startups launched by Indians.

Nowadays, YOUNGSTERS are not afraid of doing experiments. With the experiments, innovation and discovery they are setting their feet across the globe.

 

Final Words:

The above mentioned top 20 startups in the World in 2020, is the clear indication of today’s thoughtful young and passionate entrepreneurs. The world is becoming more tech-savvy supported by IoT, BlockChains, Technology and other digital things. If you have any idea or business plan, just do it. It’s your life. Shape and change yourself with your set of skills and passion in time. Don’t wait for time to change you. And, Always keep in mind, that planning, execution and path of continuous improvement decides destiny. Otherwise, the path of success and failure are almost the same.
