Israel To Mentor Indian Start-ups

Chandigarh: Israel in India has collaborated with TiE Chandigarh to provide mentorship to Indian startups in the field of sustainability and help them build skills to upscale their business capabilities. This project further strengthened the business and economic ties between both countries. It was also special because both nations are celebrating 30 years of full diplomatic relations.

The project concluded with an event organized on December 8 in Chandigarh, during which five Indian startups presented their business ideas in the presence of Ambassador of Israel Naor Gilon. These startups were chosen after a 3-month long process. This involved an all-India competition for which applications were received from over 100 startups.

On this occasion, Ambassador Naor Gilon said, “Israel and India are natural partners. Our governments continue to cooperate and support the vibrant startup scene in both countries, and our industries and private sectors are sharing their experiences and working on the ground together. I encourage people from both countries to come together, grow together and merge their innovative ideas and technological capabilities to reach new heights.”
