Are you ready for international expansion? Innovation Norway and Nordic Hub India just launched the “India market entry” accelerator program, that will help selected Norwegian companies to understand emerging markets- and get going in the second fastest growing economy in the world. The country has vast opportunities for Norwegian companies planning to go global! This can be your chance to explore the enormous opportunities in the giant Indian market.
-We will hand-hold the companies on their journey into the Indian market, says Gargi Pareek, Innovation Norway Mumbai. Together with the Nordic Hub team, she has created this program that will accept 5 growth companies at the time.
-The program is far more than a knowledge program, it also has a major matchmaking component, says Jørn Lein Mathisen, founder of Oslo International Hub, one of the co-founders of Nordic Hub India.
-The right contacts are essential in India. We will make maximum use of our large network to get the Norwegian companies started with the right local partners, says Gargi Pareek.
The companies accepted in the program will get support from advisers in Innovation Norway and guidance from the panel of mentors in Nordic Hub with extensive experience in Norway-India business.
One of the mentors is Trond Skundberg, that has been involved in Norway-India collaborations for the last 17 years. He will be following and assisting the companies from beginning to end of the 3 months accelerator program.
Mumbai week: 26.-29. January 2018
The selected companies, Hub mentors, IN advisers and local partners will gather in Mumbai for some intensive days of work, learning, site visits, business networking and matchmaking.
-We will meet and be inspired by some legendary Indian business people and even participate at a high-profile summit and expo with our own pavilion, Gargi Pareek says.
The new Norwegian Consul General, Ann Ollestad, will host a networking event for participators and Indian partners at her residence in Mumbai.
