About BSE Hi-Tech
BSE Hi-Tech is a credible, regulated platform for young fast-growing companies to list and gain visibility and increase its brand presence. In recent years, the Indian startup ecosystem has witnessed tremendous growth and has come into its own—driven by factors such as massive funding, consolidation activities, evolving technology and a burgeoning domestic market. These entrepreneurs need a platform to reach out to potential investors and raise funds to fuel growth. The new age companies which extensively use internet technology and knowledge based ideas and create innovative enterprises have attracted the brightest talent, creating new job opportunities and made services industry more efficient.
BSE Hi-Tech recognizes that these young companies are unique in terms of their business models, which tend to be revenue focused rather than profit focused and hence do not fit the traditional valuation models. The listing norms on this platform are made easier to attract the new breed of entrepreneurs.
On the other hand, there is a large untapped pool of investors looking for new asset classes. A platform for Startups will channelize funds towards the growing entrepreneurial ecosystem and offer a new investment avenue for investors seeking to widen their portfolios. If Startups are encouraged to list locally, the listed universe can expand at the same time giving Indian investors, with the appetite for such risks, an opportunity to participate in the growth story. Sophisticated investors will also find a new exit route and be able to churn their portfolios better.
