For a start-up founder, international perspective at an early stage, is just as important as the  focus on local markets.  In the phase of product development and proof of concept already, international cooperation can advance the research and technology development. Understanding the demands of global markets at an early stage helps to become successful in the long run.

In the panel discussion, experts from Indian and German science incubators as well as start-ups will discuss the opportunities and challenges of international cooperation with focus on India and Germany. Should start-ups look internationally only into market access? How can incubators support international exchange programmes? What makes the German start-up environment interesting for Indian start-ups and vice-versa? What support structures for exchange in the Indo-German corridor are currently in place? These and other questions will be addressed in the panel.
