About the Mission
India is the world’s fastest growing smartphone market, with 462 million internet users, second only to China.
The number rose 23 percent last year, and there’s lots more headroom for growth because even now only a third of the 1.3 billion population is connected to the internet. Nearly 80 percent of India’s internet users access the web with mobile devices, making it a mobile-first market like China, opening up possibilities for new business models and innovation.
Join us to the Go Global mission to Bengaluru and Hyderabad, the most powerful startup ecosystems in India. Whereas Bengaluru is the established Indian startup capital, ranking 19th on the global list of the top 25 high-tech cities in the world, surpassing global cities such as Hong Kong, Berlin and Shenzhen, Hyderabad is the rising star for entrepreneurs.
