One of the quality of an entrepreneur is the appetite for expansion. Its never enough for them which helps them making decisions risking something very big to achieve something great. 

India has witnessed many such startups going international after setting firm roots in India. The hunger for more is what kept them going. Lets take a look at some of them.

1. Bira

Launched in 2015, Bira has become India’s favourite craft beer in no time. While already being present in the US, the company has also expanded to Singapore and Nepal with over $77 million funding raised so far.

Founder Ankur Jain started the business by importing craft beers to India from breweries in Brooklyn, New York. A modern beer brand, Bira91 became one of the fastest growing beers in the world in just a matter of 3 years.

Keeping consumer tastes and preferences in mind, founder Ankur wants to remain the world of beer and keep his customers happy.

Bira91 comes with the tagline of ‘Imagined in India’ and hopes to become a global leader like Apple, Google and Nike.

2.OYO
A much successful hotel room booking portal, Oyo went global with its entry in Nepal and Malaysia. The startup also launched its operations in China in June this year.

The company has claimed to have expanded to a thousand hotels across 28 provinces in China. China is a mjor market for hotels and Oyo’s tapping into it has given it further success. Oyo plans on becoming one of the top platforms in international markets after being a major success in India.

The Indian startup is now eyeing Indonesia, UK and European countries to expand into in next 12 to 18 months, reports have stated.

Oyo was founded in 2013 by Ritesh Agarwal and became a huge success after its $100 million funding from Softbank in 2015. The company also launched its own brand Townhouse in 2017, a budget hotel fully managed by Oyo’s staff.

3.Paytm
Paytm is just one of those companies that keeps expanding its business. After its launch in Canada back in 2017, the company decided to set up a barcode-based smartphone payment service in Japan called "PayPay". 

Paytm has also managed to get foreign attention in its E-Commerce platform called Paytm mall


4. Ola

The leading cab aggregator company Ola announced in January this year of going international by launching its operations in Australia.

Founded in 2010, Ola cabs ride in more than 110 cities in India giving a stiff competition to its rival Uber. Ola also recently announced its plans to launch in the UK. It seems that Ola’s moves on expanding speedily will only intensify its rivalry with Uber.

Ola started with Australian cities Sydney, Melbourne and Perth.

Ola’s offers like ‘Ola Play’ will certainly work for the company’s benefit making it a success globally as well.



Watching our own startups expanding and setting roots in foreign land has encouraged many young entrepreneurs to take a step forward. There are many programs that are helping them in many ways to expand.
