India is the fourth largest base for startups in the world, with big changes taking place in its ecosystem. It has over 4,000 startups and is looking to double its number by year 2020. China is becoming one of India’s fastest growing Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) investors in its startup ecosystem. With the potential of startups being tomorrow’s job creators and drivers of innovation, this Forum, held at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park, the largest incubator system in Hong Kong, will feature startup founders and entrepreneurs with the aim to deepen the entrepreneurial connections between Hong Kong and India and provide collaborative opportunities to leverage business linkages in each other’s markets.
