Economic Times Power of Ideas: Statistics of Winners & Submissions

Economic Times "Power Of Ideas" has announced the first round winners. Here are some fun statistics which I extracted. The figures are not exact since i had to discard some data because of non standard ways of representing the data which would have required either a manual analysis or heavy modification of the program used to extract the information. The statistics are based on roughly 970 selections for places and 945 selections for years.

The surprising fact is that the number of people in their early twenties who got selected is not very high. These are the people who can put in more amount of time into a startup as their risk downside is limited. Looks like they do not agree with Paul Graham and gave a huge premium to experience. Here is the data I have extracted from the original shortlist.
