India Global Innovation Connect 2023

Join our dialogue on the emergence of India as a global innovation and startup hub, bringing together Indian technology developers and business end-users, business leaders, startup founders, executives and technology thought leaders - with Swiss and other international peers and partners.

Fostering innovation for tomorrow
with India and the world

At Swissnex, we believe in building a community of innovators and a sustained support system for Swiss startups to venture into the Indian market and finding their ground. To this end, we are constantly exploring opportunities, pushing the horizon towards excellence, value addition, and building a community of entrepreneurs, policymakers and corporates. The India Global Innovation Connect (IGIC) is one such effort.

In 2022, the India Global Innovation Connect (IGIC) attracted 300 select delegates from around the world, including Israel, UK, US, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, France, and Switzerland, along with top Indian corporations like Infosys, Tata Digital, and 10+ unicorns.

As knowledge partners in its upcoming edition this year, we’re enabling the sharing of experiences, creating synergies, and debating strategies for sustaining
world-class start-up ecosystems in India with
international partners.

From the fast-emerging Femtech sector to quantum computing to accelerate innovation to the changing VC landscape, Swiss experts and key industry players across domains will highlight the transformative impact of what they are creating and collaboration opportunities. We look forward to your participation, too, and hope that the platform will set your innovative business ideas on much more exciting trajectories ahead!
