Investment NSW is here to help not only NSW businesses with market entry into India but also facilitate opportunities for Indian businesses in NSW, Australia. Partnering up with NASSCOM for these roadshows will hopefully encourage aspiring tech entrepreneurs in both countries to take the leap into another exciting market. NSW is an excellent test bed for large-scale and rapid testing of products and platforms. Sydney in NSW, with its highly developed world-class technology hub offers an ideal launchpad for international companies.

India tech players have been investing hugely in acquiring newer capabilities both organically and inorganically and more so after the pandemic. India’s innovative capabilities, digital talent, scale and Australian cutting edge technologies can together solve some of the most complex global issues. The roadshows are intended to create a well-structured informative platform for Indian technology SMEs that are interested in serving the Australian market and forming critical partnerships.” said Shivendra Singh, Vice President & Head Global Trade, NASSCOM.
