KPMG in India’s Emerging Giants Programme

From early stage funding advice to helping structure your organisation in the appropriate jurisdiction; from harnessing the power of technology and data to helping optimise revenue and finally helping you with planning an exit, KPMG in India’s Emerging Giants (EG) Programmes support privately owned businesses with their growth agendas.

India currently houses the world's third largest startup ecosystem, with over 100 firms being valued at over USD1 billion, or what are known as Unicorns. From e-commerce to electric vehicles, the Indian startups are the torch bearer for innovation and entrepreneurial spirit of India. The startup ecosystem continues to contribute to the digitisation of India and create employment and wealth across various segments of society. The global capital is moving into India in billions of dollars every year as Venture Capital and Private Equity funds have been consistently investing into Indian startups. A number of startups have given multifold returns to the investors and the next two years are expected to be defining as a number of Unicorns are looking at listing in India and overseas.

The Emerging Giants Programme understands the importance of entrepreneurs working to transform new ideas into thriving companies. Founders face considerable challenges as they work to bring new ideas to the marketplace while taking incremental leadership responsibilities. Raising capital, finding talent, acquiring customers, complying with regulatory requirements, and other management initiatives take time and are important to maximise business success. Therefore, as an initiative, we bring together the right capabilities in the field of advisory, tax, and assurance related services, to help the client with their unique challenges in today’s dynamic environment.
