In this episode, we try to understand the State of SaaS of India (our fourth episode in this series). We have also discussed the future of SaaS in India with Nikhil (Partner, Strive VC) and Aviral (Founder, A Junior VC) before.
Key insights about the State of SaaS in India from our conversation with him –
- While India is a big market for SaaS, we’ll see maximum adoption only when people’s mindset about cloud software change.
- With remote work being more prevalent in the coming years, the demand for SaaS software will go through the roof. Various tasks like people management, expense tracking and more that were earlier performed manually, will be now done using a SaaS tool.
- The number of first-generation of SaaS product companies in India will only grow in the coming years.
