Indian Embassy presses the button for Start-Ups

In a significant move, Indian and German Start-Ups have come together to join hands for exploring synergies for collaboration in the start-up space. German Investors, venture and seed funds have also shown keen interest to provide funding and investment in the Indian Startups. This has come as an outcome of a focused business event organized by the Embassy of India, Berlin on Start-Up India titled “Indo-German Start-up Landscape and Opportunities” which was held on 25 October 2016 with the support from the Bertelsmann Foundation, the German Start-Up Association and CII. The event, which saw participation of large number of German start-Ups, investors, accelerators and venture funds, helped in providing a common platform to connect Indian and German start-ups and highlighting the significant potential for collaboration.
The event also included special pitching sessions in which a variety of start-ups presented their start-up concept and ideas. Special focus of the event included two panel discussions on topics of “Expectation Mapping to Connect Indo-German Start-Ups” and “Bridging the Funding and Innovation gap”.A  delegation of start-ups from India is currently in Berlin to take part in the event. For next two days, the start-up delegation from India will be meeting various German Start-Ups, investors, seed fund providers and relevant stakeholders with the support of the Indian Embassy and the event partners.

Speaking at the event Ambassador Gurjit Singh emphasized that there was need to capitalize on the current focus areas of the Indo-German collaboration such as skill development, education, training, environment etc and to work on developing socially relevant high start-ups in these areas.
