Shradha Sharma, CEO of YourStory: „The startup ecosystems in India and Germany are both mature and vibrant. India’s high-tech companies and Germany’s industrial landscape as well as the financing opportunities in both countries would perfectly complement each other. Yet, there is little cooperation. The GINSEP supports both German and Indian startups in their efforts to understand and ultimately access each other ecosystem for mutual growth.”
„It was a very successful event today. The high number of attendees coming form all over Germany, shows the great interest of German entrepreneurs in the Indian startup ecosystem” said Angela De Giacomo. She is the Head of the India-based Bissell Family Office and one of the initiators of GINSEP with the German Startups Association. “In the upcoming months the new website ginsep.co, the planned ambassador network as well as the first delegation trip to India that is also supported by Bertelsmann Foundation will drive true exchange. From February 18th to 25th 2018 we will bring together startups, investors, corporates as well as politicians from Germany with their counterparts in Bangalore and Delhi. In the upcoming two years of GINSEP much more of these formats will follow. We want to connect as many entrepreneurs as possible!” stresses De Giacomo.
