GINSEP started in 2017 to bring India and Germany closer together to foster a rich Indo-German startup ecosystem. Even though the two countries are geographically miles apart, GINSEP bridges the gap by providing a platform that empowers the collective.

It aims to strengthen the startup culture through a series of initiatives that are both, specific objectives per case driven, and group programs driven. These initiatives are built around 3 thematic pillars: Market, Talent and Capital.

Market Expertise

Entering a new market can be a challenging task. It requires orientation, structured data collection, network building and more. That’s why, we have a strategic approach to helping startups find the right avenues and resources through our Softlanding program to helps them succeed in gaining an in-depth knowledge of the German market within a targeted sector. 

Talent Sourcing

German startups lack skilled workers, mainly in the Information and Communication Technology sector, and recruit from India while Indian graduates from Germany struggle to find jobs. We facilitate this exchange to connect startups with the right talent by breaking cultural and bureaucratic barriers.

Capital Building

Startups require foreign financial acceleration and navigating through a new environment can be quite challenging. To help with this, we offer in-depth insights on various funding programs and provide access to potential investors through our channels. 

GINSEP Involvement

Our program supports startups at different stages by providing them with market access and helping them build their market capacities.

We also assist startups in identifying and working with key players from the Indo-German Startup ecosystem. Additionally, our extensive network in India and Germany benefits corporates in identifying innovative startups.
