Almost on the tip of non-Indian tongues when blabbing about the startup ecosystem in South Asia, Jaipur is seeing a few successful startup ventures and has a strong and growing local angel investor network.
The capital of India's Rajasthan state, Jaipur is quite often referred to as the "Pink City" because of its buildings pink hues. It is the gateway to India's most flamboyant state awash in chaotic colorful streets with a mix of the old and the new. It overflows with the cacophony of human madness where camels dawdle, slow-paced cycle-rickshaws frustrate motorbike riders and buses attempt to dodge everything. The city's heart is where you will find the opulent palace complex with its lush gardens, courtyards and museums. There are bazaars to fossick, alleys to get lost in and the fairy-tale structure of Amber Fort to gawk at.
Jaipur is attempting to outdo Chennai and Ahmedabad in relation to startup ecosystems that encompass different industries from ed-tech, fin-tech and e-commerce. There is plenty of local angel funding happening to support future entrepreneurs from the state's 22 universities including Malaviya National Institute of Technology and LNM Institute of Information Technology.
If you are into authentic Indian curries, always arriving late (it is considered poor manners to be on time) and know that your left hand is used for performing ablutions not for touching food or people, you will be fine in Jaipur.
