Telangana tech startups witnessed a 78% drop in funding to $99.2 million last year from $459 million in 2022.

According to Tracxn Geo Annual Report of 2023, the plunge in funding is primarily due to a global slowdown due to macroeconomic trends, and geopolitical factors.

Only two acquisitions were observed in the Telangana Tech space in 2023 as against nine in 2022. Aerospace, Maritime & Defense Tech, EdTech, and Enterprise Applications were the top-funded sectors in 2023. The Tracxn report stated that the Edtech firms attracted investments worth $33 million in 2023 in Telangana- an increase of 65% in total funding compared with 2022. The Aerospace, Maritime & Defense Tech sector secured a total funding of $35.8 million.

The most active investors in the Telangana Tech landscape are CIE IIITH, T-Hub, and Indian Angel Network. however, Temasek was the top early-stage investor last year while We Founder Circle, Equanimity Investments, and Venture Catalysts were the most active investors in terms of seed-stage investments.
