TechHub and UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) have launched GREAT Tech Rocketships initiative 2015 with support from iSPIRT, with a global call for ideas and submissions in the form of a 60-second video tweeted @TechHubBlr using the hashtag #IfNotNowThenWhen.
This initiative will seek out startups and ideas in India, the UK and around the world that have the potential to be fast growing “Rocketships”. Entrants will be evaluated through Retail technology, Finance technology, Data analysis & visualization.
The selected companies will then be invited to demo their product at one of the TechHub Demo Nights on 3rd February 2015 in London, Bangalore or Boston. Further events will also be held in early February at venues across Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad and Pune.
Their visits will enable them to immerse themselves into the local technology ecosystems; meeting other entrepreneurs, identifying funding options and building product propositions to fit those markets.
For each of these companies, TechHub will provide a year’s Flex Membership to the founders enabling them to leverage the global TechHub network and support system as they move forward in their journeys.
UKTI works with UK-based businesses encourage and support overseas companies to ensure their success in international markets through exports.
iSPIRT Foundation connects and guides software product entrepreneurs, catalyzes business growth and improve performance by leveraging software products.
