The Next BIG Idea Contest is a Gateway for Indian Startups to the North American market. The contest seeks to discover India's top 5 high-potential and innovative technology companies who are looking to leverage a soft-landing opportunity in Canada as a gateway to the North American market. The selected startups get access to a bespoke market access program, that includes mentorship, industry connects, investor meetings and a great International exposure.
Increasingly, Indian entrepreneurs are building global companies. Right from the outset, there is an aspiration to build products and reach out to a global audience. For a very long time, companies seeking to go global, largely targeted the U.S market as their first International customer. For entrepreneurs building tech ventures, Silicon Valley has been the BIG dream. However, not only is it difficult for companies to make a dent right away but, for the last few years, there have been several more global tech hot beds that have emerged, which are more welcoming towards such young startups.
At this panel discussion, you will hear about the opportunities presented by Canada as a gateway to North America, as well as hear from leading corporates, as to what they have been witnessing in some of the emerging tech hotbeds. The panelists will also shed light on the role of governments, and their efforts in unlocking access to markets for founders through policies, collaborations and partnerships. The event will conclude with an experience sharing session, wherein past winners of NBI will share their experiences and post-program success.
