Its network includes global prodigy mentors and investors with specialization in the fields of IoT, Sensor Technology, big data, robotics, med-tech, education, mobile and payments and are working in collaboration with the Indo-­US corridor.

The virtual bridge will enable Startup ecosystem in India to evolve to the next level, bridging the gap between ideation and implementation.”
