My impressions from India Digital Summit 2021 I attended the last two days are still fresh. I was impressed with all that I have seen and heard – from great line-up of speakers (successful Indian entrepreneurs, VCs, politicians and government officials) to start-ups like Zyla Health and fintechs like KredX, Khatabook, PayTM, LendingKart, Faircent and others.
I am convinced that India is on track to be one of the top spots in the world to launch and operate digital companies from.
Although there were not a lot of successful cases like that.
From my perspective, entrepreneurs in India today have a great position. They benefit not only from the huge and growing domestic market with lots of technical talents, but also from the know-how they get by operating in a market which forces them to observe the many different cultures, languages, and regulations of individual Indian states.
I believe that any company that masters the challenges above, is significantly better prepared than others to conquer diversified global markets.
P.S. – I am perhaps a bit biased – I really like India, its culture, its diversity, and Indian food – ever since I entered the 21. century in India during a 3-month travel around the country.
P.P.S. – If the opportunity presents itself, I will gladly support such company, as described above, on its path of conquering the world straight from India.
