Singapore, June 6 (ANI): The last few months have not been good for startups and their venture capital (VC) backers.Growth stocks like Southeast Asia's largest ride-hailing and food delivery company Grab, ecommerce giant Sea Limited, Indian companies Paytm, Zomato and Freshworks are some example of unicorns that went public recently but have performed poorly against the rest of the market.Grab and Sea Limited, both listed in the US, are down 65 per cent year-to-date. India listed delivery firm Zomato is down 49 per cent whereas fintech company Paytm is down 53 per cent.Both are listed in India while Nasdaq listed software house Freshworks is down 40 per cent for the year. This is in comparison to the SENSEX which is down just six per cent and S & P 500 index's decline of 14 per cent since the start of 2022.These growth stocks have been impacted by rising interest rates and inflation which is seen by the market as bad for newer firms which typically require loans to expand quickly.
