Goa Startups | Entrepreneurs and Startups in Goa [Exhaustive List]

Cheap Beer, amazing beaches and astonishing nightlife, you just can’t dislike this place. But let me amuse you with more reasons which totally justifies the statement “Work hard and Play Hard”. Although, we would share the story of some successful entrepreneurs in Goa who are running their startup successfully. Quietly lurking in the shadows are the entrepreneurs sprouting out their startups in Goa.

They are purely justifying the statement of The Economic Times, “Goa has become a hotbed for startup activity and talent". Moreover, the icing on the cake is its Startup policies which have been brought forward by the Government of Goa. The policy forecasts this small state should be among the top 25 Destinations in Asia by the year 2025. It also says that it would be a hub for at least 100 successful start-ups and counting entrepreneurs sprouting out of the state.

The state is believed to have the perfect ‘Work-life balance'. Also, fast enhancing technological as well as infrastructural changes to cater to the needs of an entrepreneur. The future forecast of the startup environment in the state does look appealing and there is an obvious change in trends over time. However, with a supportive startup ecosystem and guidance from Goa Chambers of Commerce, Goa Entrepreneurs Mentoring Services, 91Springboard and a lot of others, the state has produced some of the hottest startups by emerging entrepreneurs in the country.
