New initiative launched in India to give startups the skills they need to grow their business and drive UK-India tech collaboration.

This is part of the UK-India Tech Partnership announced by Prime Ministers Theresa May and Narendra Modi in April 2018.

Government is committed to strengthening the UK-India partnership and exchanging our expertise in tech.

Some of India’s most innovative and cutting-edge ‘tech for good’ startups will have the chance to take part in a new programme to improve their business skills, build links with the UK’s thriving digital sector and pave the way for future economic partnerships.

The Go Global programme is part of the ambitious UK-India Tech Partnership announced by UK Prime Minister Theresa May and India Prime Minister Narendra Modi in April 2018. It is a successful innovation scheme supporting startups to work with UK expertise to take their firms to the next level.

India is home to a thriving digital sector worth approximately $200bn and is a growing hub for technologies such as artificial intelligence, cyber security, data analytics and a leading manufacturer of internet-connected devices and services. The programme will focus on India tech firms in the tech for good sector.

Digital Secretary Jeremy Wright said: “India is home to a rapidly growing tech sector and with thriving fintech, e-commerce and telecommunications industries.

“Through the newly expanded Go Global programme we are giving Indian tech entrepreneurs focused on the development of tech for good the opportunity to hone their skills so they can compete on the global stage.

“This will also help to build connections for UK startups in new markets, highlight Britain as the place to develop new technology and pave the way for future economic partnerships.”
