National Association of Software and Services Companies (NASSCOM), in partnership with US technology giant IBM, launched the Techstartup.In here on IBM Cloud today
Techstartup.In is a digital platform that allows startups, investors and venture capitalists to network in a particular city, according to a statement from the apex body of Indian IT-ITeS sector.
It was first launched in Bengaluru last year followed by Delhi and Mumbai this year.
“The platform serves as a centralised hub for India’s tech ecosystem providing information and resources to help turn ideas into businesses, deliver valuable tools for tech startups, and connect citizen entrepreneurs to opportunities in the tech ecosystem”, it said.
“The programme looks at diversifying the tech start-up ecosystem within the city where market leaders in the technology space will not only support startups but will also connect with them through the platform.”
K S Vishwanathan, Vice-President of NASSCOM, said, “With the launch of Techstartup.In, what we aim to do is use the latest technology, create an apt platform for city based startups to connect, network and find the right people who will help them scale up in the otherwise competitive industry. Reinventing the technology requires far-reaching changes, from talent to infrastructure, and takes time to develop.”
Seema Kumar, Country Manager, Ecosystem Development, IBM India & SA, said, “IBM Cloud is helping start-ups to scale their business easily and also leverage the power of cognitive in solving complex real-world problems and launch innovative products that are future ready.
