“2016 was a reminder of how wrathful nature can get if you meddle a lot with it. With more companies promoting natural products, I feel 2017 will be an year of more awareness and adaptability for handmade & products where people buy local and consume local. There will be a slow but steady shift towards non mass produced products with focus on products that are sustainable in nature. The last six months have been good and insightful for us & helped us firm our hypothesis. In the coming year, we wish to grow and at the same time be sustainable and profitable for our customers and partner sellers.”

Ashwani Rathore, Co-Founder & CEO, SpiderG:

“2016 has been quite a dramatic year for the startup industry as a whole. The ecosystem which was lot more conducive to the startup culture in 2015 did not continue as expected. From funding point of view 2016 was a bad  year for startups. 2017 is expected to witness a good number of entrepreneurs entering the enterprise space. Government Initiatives like Startup India- Standup India, Introduction of GST  could see many startups entering the enterprise space since taxation rules would be a lot easier to understand and incorporate in the application. Due to demonetization and digital India initiative we would see more start-ups coming up with SaaS and FinTech  products targeting SMEs. 2017 will see rise of more B2B startups due to its potential of revenue and profit generation. Many tech startups will use web APIs (Application Program Interface) to connect and integrate their product or service with others. 2017 also looks promising for higher penetrations into tier 2 & 3 markets. At SpiderG we are continuously innovating and establishing networks and strengthening our back-end to effectively reach out to these markets.”
