India's Premier E-Commerce Startup Showcase
supported by Sequoia Capital
Why E-Sparks 2011
Buying and selling online is not new. The major concern was security and user adoption. With the emerging reliable e-commerce models that provide credible and faster service maybe at customers doorstep, e-commerce business in India has become somewhat hyped, somewhat romanced about in media, somewhat inviting investor interest and needless to say, it is the hottest sector in India today. Fueling this interest are successful e-commerce enterprises that are witnessing massive growth in a short span of time. The natural question arises, what is the space all about?
YourStory.in helps you find the right answers
