New Delhi and Bangalore

We are inviting scale-ups in the fields of  Smart City, Urban Innovation or Mobility from Berlin, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines to join the trip. Delegates should have a strong interest in building lasting connections with India.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, the delegates cover only their travel costs & hotel.

Why India?

India is currently considered one of the largest startup ecosystems in the world. In 2018, 30 startups in India have reached unicorn status, however, women still run only 14% of businesses in the startup ecosystem and raised only 5.24% of total seed capital in the country. This is why the Indian government has reserved INR 1 billion (over 12 million EUR) for women entrepreneurs.

In 2015 the Indian Government launched a Smart Cities Mission to support the development of 100 smart cities with 21 of these expected to be ready by 2021. Mobility, electricity, water and sanitation are some of the areas the Indian government wants solutions for.

With an increasing rate in urbanization and a highly English-speaking population, India has been tactically able to attract a growing number of foreign direct investments. Join us for this delegation trip to discover how you can tap into the Indian market and the huge opportunities it offers.
