The German India week roadshow organised by the German Startups Association proceeded through the Bengaluru startup landscape, with 24-member delegation of German investors, entrepreneurs, and Federal officials shaking hands with members of Department of IT BT over morning coffee on 20 February 2018. Germany is known for its precision in manufacturing and hardware, while India is known for its IT software power. This combination of brawn and brain as it were, could be put to solving some pressing issues in India while at the same time ensuring that German startups get to explore new market opportunities. Germany and Karnataka have been in touch since to chart a plan for start-up collaboration between the two.
