[Apr 20th 2017] India as an Innovation Center: Is there a case?


Speaker:  Sriram Venkataraman.
Independent Business and Technology Advisor.

India is attracting attention in the business world. With China showing signs of slowing down and the anxiety around overall global economic growth, India is now in the spotlight. A lot of this has to do with the large population, the increasing spend power amongst the emerging middle class. Some corporations have also decided to invest in building capacity in India to ensure that an efficient local supply chain is available to capture the emerging, growing market.

This approach is now getting a much needed and serious support from the Make in India program launched by the government of India. This is the conventional view of India as a large, promising market and as a manufacturing base.

Our presenter makes a case for a relatively less known and under appreciated view of India. India as an Innovation Center. India possesses a unique combination of numbers, skills and an entrepreneurial mindset along with a strong diaspora enabling innovation of a different type and scale.
