"By 2025, I believe that we will have 1,00,000 start-ups all over the country. They will create $500 billion of value and lot of money for investors. They will employ 3.25 million people," Pai told on the sidelines of Rajasthan Digifest.

Currently, there are 32,000 start-ups and every year 7,000 companies are coming around. "Youngsters through the use of technology are solving hard core challenges and I believe that innovation by young people will transform India," Pai said.

The impact has already been seen in many sectors including education, healthcare, education, and e-commerce. Pai, who is also an angel investor, believes that India has possibly got the third largest ecosystem for startups after the US and China.
