Do Indian Startups Need Access to Public Markets (like NSE-EMERGE platform for SMEs)

A lot of people don’t know about NSE’s Emerge and ITP platforms – Emerge is for SMEs, ITP is for start-ups.

These platforms provide funding benefits (better valuation because of the access to public markets, alternative for fund raising) but, according to our discussions, they havent helped many startups.

Our friends at Inc42 Media have written a great article on this. They have listed many of the challenges the ITP platform has like regulation changes by SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) and the requirement of being profitable before listing. BSE also has launched their SME platform but has postponed a similar platform for start ups.
