India is an incredibly large country with a rather disappointing number of Internet users. Some of the hurdles that Indian masses experience while connecting to internet are low or poor connectivity to broadband, non-existence of cellular networks in remote regions, slow connections and plain economics: a lot of people cannot afford tablets, laptops and computers. They cannot even afford expensive smartphones.

Yet, a revolution is brewing slowly but surely. Mobile internet is taking the country by storm and connecting people where it might not have been possible just a few years ago. Cheap mobile devices have democratized technology and brought Internet or at least limited Internet to people across the country, regardless of how poor they are. It should not surprise you if you find a malnutritioned child holding a cheap Android-based cellphone made in another emerging country to check his or her Facebook updates.

Startup Country Takes Notice of Mobile Revolution

With technology becoming more accessible and easily available even to the poorest, its commercial aspects have not been ignored either. A number of Indian star-ups today depend on the mobile revolution to start their businesses. While much of this has been B2C services and solutions, there have been innumerable startups that cater to businesses as well. These B2B startups typically make use of both mobile & cloud services to augment their growth. In this article, let us take a look at the silent mobile and cloud revolutions that are fuelling Indian startup growth.
