Asians at techcrunch50. Indians are far behind when it comes to realizing their presence at international level in the field of technology.
Are indians far behind when it comes to realizing their presence at international level in the field of technology(specially web technologies)….?
We need no facts to prove that the situation seems quite pathetic for indians in this regard at the moment.
Most of the indians who play a critical role in any startup(CEO,CTO etc) that hits bull’s eye in international market are NRIs(Non-resident Indians).They actually don’t represent their startup as an ‘Indian startup’.
And those who represent themselves as ‘Indian startups’ find it hard to make it big because of limited media coverage,deficient funds,narrow resources and similar other reasons.
TechCrunch50,an event that really MATTERS in the tech industry happened this week(from monday to wednesday) and there were around 52 companies that were shortlisted for this grand event.
The event was live streamed over the entire 3 day period and had millions of viewers from all over the world.But it was really startling to see that the entire event didn’t see any indian startup(even for the sake of being a country’s representative)
Japan was the lone country which represented the biggest continent in TC50.There were five companies in total(three presented in TC50 and rest two in DemoPit) namely Opentrace,Tonchidot(futuristic!),Gazopa,Adlib and Mulodo.
The startup industry in India is definitely growing up but indian presence is still to be noticed at an international level…
