Perspectives on building technology businesses and AcceleratorIndia from Cartezia


Technology-enabled innovation remains critical to exploiting opportunities in the Indian market. Doing this successfully in ‘homogeneous’ mature markets such as Europe and North America requires detailed understanding of product design, business models and distribution channels. In less mature ‘heterogenous’ markets with layered socio-demographics, this is harder to do because the economics of scaling are more complex. And taking technologies, products and services across the divide between these two types of markets can be challenging. Cross-border business development in this context requires a thorough understanding of the Indian market structure, its drivers, dynamics and the role of the ecosystem and partners to achieve success. The objective of Catalyzt India is to provide insights on the Indian market differences and practical guidance on cross-border business development.
