Connecting India's best enterprise startups with Fortune 1000 firms. Catalyzing $100B in partnerships in 10 years and rebranding India as a tech product nation.

Our Mission


We are catalyzing over $100B in partnerships between India’s best enterprise startups and global corporations, and rebranding India as a tech product nation.

We provide India’s promising product startups with mentorship and access to international markets, while offering global firms insight and access to the Indian market. Our invitation-only events strategically match the needs and wants of Fortune 1000 companies with the technology offerings of Indian startups.



Startup Bridge India was born of a collaboration between TiE Silicon Valley and iSPIRT, and led by Raju Reddy, Manu Rekhi, Rajan Maruthavanan, BV Jagadeesh, Sharad Sharma, Venk Shukla, and Dipty Desai.

After keynoting our second one-day conference at Stanford, John Chambers encouraged our founders to turn Startup Bridge India into a standalone entity that is fully dedicated to its mission. In September 2018 we became a 501(c)(c) nonprofit.


Our Impact

India needs 30 years of 8% growth to become a middle-income country. This growth won’t happen without a flourishing startup ecosystem; Startup Bridge India was created to accelerate this growth, rapidly advancing economic development and job growth.

In just 16 months after our inaugural event at Stanford we have catalyzed more than $63M in tangible value.




With just 2 events, our introductions have led to: 2 M&A events + 1 corp VC investment + more than 7 partnerships.
