"Samsung is extremely bullish on R&D in India. We have been here for over 22 years. The three R&D centres in India work on several cutting-edge technologies," Samsung Global SVP and MD of Samsung R&D Institute India, Bengaluru Dipesh Shah told PTI.
According to recent data from global job site Indeed, four unicorns - Snapdeal, PayTM, ShopClues and Flipkart - make up around 90 per cent of all job postings.
A unicorn is a startup company valued at more than a billion dollars, typically in the software or technology sector.
