"The start-up economy in is booming. In the next couple of years, it will be huge," Global Services managing director Amitabh Ray told PTI on the sidelines of Infocom ICT seminar here.

"We want to see how the start-ups are doing and what kind of disruptions can it bring. If we find that any start-up needs mentoring, we can think of it," Ray said.
