German-Indian live pitch with "GINSEP"

In recent years, the Karlsruhe Economic Development Department has linked an economy-related event for partners around the "India Summer Days". The "India Board Karlsruhe" has already worked successfully on several events and delegations with "GINSEP", the "German Indian Startup Exchange Program", non-profit initiative of the "Federal Association of German Startups".

This year the Economic Development Department plans to support start-ups on Thursday, July 16, as an online event with a live pitch from Indian and German start-ups. In addition to Karlsruhe, other locations are partners of the event, which gives Karlsruhe the chance of greater visibility for its international activities.

Startups from Digital Health, Mobility, Industrial Digitization or IoT sectors have the one-time opportunity to pitch before an expert jury (with Economic Development Department and Pune Office of the "India Board Karlsruhe”) and win exclusive benefits. Whether applying via the Karlsruhe clusters and networks for start-ups, awarding a prize of up to 2,000 euros, mentoring, free time in an accelerator, mentorship, participation in summits or designing a session after the pitch for further exchange: the "India Board Karlsruhe" coordinates the live pitch together with Economic Development Department.

More information: We will select 18 start-ups in total from the aforementioned sectors to do a 5-minute pitch on 16th of July followed by a Q&A with our renowned jury.
The application will close on 03rd of July.

Anlaufstelle in Pune


Die Kooperation zwischen Karlsruhe und dem indischen Pune ist einen Schritt weiter: Im Januar 2014 wurde im "MCCIA Trade Tower", 403, Senapati Bapat Road, eine direkte Karlsruher Anlaufstelle mit den Repräsentantinnen Iris Becker und Winnie Kulkarni von "Let's Bridge IT" in Pune eröffnet.

Durch Erfolg und Ausbau der vielfältigen Aktivitäten - ob Infos rund um den Standort Karlsruhe, aktiv Kontakte zu indischen Firmen halten oder deutsche Firmen aus der TRK in und um Pune bekannter machen - erfolgte im März 2018 ein Umzug in neue Räumlichkeiten, auch durch die Erweiterung um die Repräsentanz des Landes Baden-Württembergs in Maharashtra sowie das Marketingbüro der „Hochschul Föderation Südwest“.
