Unlike the Global top 10, Indian most innovative companies are a healthy mix of different sectors and not only Technology. We have only 2 companies which are hardcore tech companies and rest are from Education, FMCG, healthcare and even manufacturing!

  • Sorry!!!!but none of the companies from your list are innovative company. They all are followers. They all are copiers. They have copied the concept from western world and implement these concepts in India. Flip kart is not an innovative company. They have copied it from Amazon. I think you should have research over it and try to find the real innovators company in India. You will hardly find such company.

    • Sonu – They are not my rankings… A third party [Fast Company] are the people who have come up with the rankings. and they have certain criteria with which they rank. So I am not entirely in agreement with you.

  • I’m not surprised to see Flipkart in the list. They’ve made a profound presence in the E-commerce industry.

  • I think a lot of people looking to start a home business just don't know where to look for help. Whether they know what they want to do or need some help deciding what to do, most people need help when starting out. http://www­.helpmeple­ase.ws has a great starting point for those that are looking for ideas on where to begin.

    • Not at all…..flipkart is not an innovative company. I think prabhudesai has forgotten the meaning of “INNOVATION”
