The HR industry in the region has been growing steadily. In 2011, the industry was estimated to be around INR 100 billion in the region. By our estimate, the HR market in India is estimated to be upwards of INR 300 Billion in FY 14-15 with an annual growth rate of more than 20% across the last 5 years. However, despite this growth, the industry is yet to attain the heights that it can reach. For eg. the HR industry in the U.S. has around 30 companies that are publicly traded, whereas in India there is only one company that has launched an IPO – the online job portal, Naukri.
This unfulfilled potential is at the core of The HR Fund’s investment focus and drives us to look for talented entrepreneurs in the HR space and mentor them towards growth and scale.
