Startup Europe comes to India

Startup Europe India Network (SEU-IN, reads See You In) connects the European and Indian Startup ecosystems. Whilst Europe has one of the leading startup ecosystems in the world, India has one of the fastest emerging startup ecosystems – great dynamism to bring together.

Digitalisation of businesses is no longer a choice but an imperative. Ecosystems are getting more interconnected and startup teams are becoming more international and distributed. Teams are global and disruption can come from anywhere. Close collaboration and speed becomes critical for sustained success.

STARTUP EU-INDIA SUMMIT (“SEIS”) is the first of a kind summit bringing together the European and Indian Startup ecosystems – Startups, Scaleups, Investors, Corporates, and Policy Makers. SEIS explores growth and investment opportunities and explores insights about the European and Indian digital markets. Engage with high-level speakers, thought leaders, successful entrepreneurs, and impactful policy makers. The participants of VISIT STARTUP INDIA will join SEIS after their visit to Delhi and Bengaluru startup hubs.

SEIS is organized by Startup Europe India Network, in collaboration with the Startup Europe initiative of the European Commission.
