According to the findings of the Inshorts Youth of the Nation Poll, 68 per cent Indians would prefer working at startups over large corporations in 2016.
The poll was conducted on the Inshorts Android app from 26th January to 2nd February, 2016, wherein more than 140,000 respondents contributed more than 1 million responses to 30 questions that dominated headlines in 2015. All questions had three options – ‘Yes’, ‘No’ and ‘Not Informed Enough’.
Out of the 42,958 respondents who voted for the question ‘In 2016, would you prefer to work with a small startup instead of a large corporation?’, as many 29,306 users voted ‘yes, while 4,760 users voted ‘no’, and 8892 users voted ‘not informed enough’.
When asked if they are in favour of Facebook’s Free Basics service, 4,530 of the 20,297 respondents voted ‘yes’, 13,073 voted ‘no’ and 2,694 voted ‘not informed enough’.
It must be noted that the poll was conducted before 8th February 2016 when Indian telecom regulator TRAI barred telcos from the differential pricing of data, which in effect, blocked Facebook’s Free Basics Service in India.
Inshorts, formerly known as News in Shorts, was started in September 2013 by three IIT dropouts Azhar Iqubal, Deepit Purkayastha and Anunay Arunav. It raised its seed round in June 2014 and recently raised a Series B round of US$20 million from Tiger Global Ventures.
The app has widened its reach from being a news aggregator to a content discovery platform, incorporating a variety of content streams like videos, infographics, podcasts, blogs and others.
