MESSAGE FROM THE DIRECTOR - LEENA PISHE THOMAS
Dear All,

It has been a very exciting year of working together with you on tech access and deployment to solve some of the biggest challenges we face within our economies and societies.

We have some news to share as we close on 2019 and start planning for 2020 and our endeavors together.

A. We have a new office in Bangalore. Please note our new address and contact information:

Global Business Inroads
#545, Trinity Greens – G-03 Ground Floor
8th main, 8th Block, Koramangala
Bengaluru, Karnataka 560034
+918041107086/+918041210203


B. We have established our presence in two of our leading partner regions and markets – Europe and UK
  • GBI is now in Europe via Global Business Inroads – Bulgaria Ltd, Plovdiv
  • GBI UK is now at the Future Business Centre in Cambridge, UK
European and UK technologies and solutions that tackle climate change and public health are a primary focus for us to liaise in these geographies apart from Governments and NGOs that would like to develop programs and projects to facilitate technology and innovation partnerships, public policy and market development initiatives in India.

GBI has been working in partnership with the EU, US, UK and India to help build multiple projects that would support more utilization and deployment of tech and innovation. In 2019 we have interacted with over 60 technology companies, working on market development and commercialization with 12+ companies. Tech adopters and medium to large companies in India have continued to work with GBI to scout for innovative technologies to create new business areas or enhance existing business areas. We have thereby built a growing ecosystem of serious technology adopters/clients who see clear business and reach value.

As a regional focus, we have continued to support our client – the European Commission’s DGRTD  to implement the Europe-India Innovation Partnership. In 2019 we were successful in winning two contracts via EUREKA/European Commission funding - to conduct viability assessment and commercialization projects for 2 EU SMEs in India and furthermore will be partnering to implement a EU Horizon 2020 project to build smart grid pilots in India.

US technologies have responded to our Indian corporate driven technology scouting calls, along with UK, EU and Indian technology companies.

GBI is also one of the  key partners on “The Innovating for Clean Air (IfCA) Programme”, that aims to improve the local business ecosystem and create a sustainable platform for ongoing UK-India government and industry cooperation and to promote best practice innovation and technology exchange. The programme focuses on tackling real-life urban challenges such as mobility, waste management, clean cooking and improved air quality understanding in Bengaluru, India.

In 2020 we would like to scale these actions with our partners and stakeholders. New on the horizon will be our India market development for Russian innovations working with private equity groups in Russia alongside continuing to support EU, UK and US companies build their partnership, business and strategic alliances in India. Expanding on avenues for tech demo and commercialization for international and Indian tech companies, 2020 will sure bring it with its share of challenges and opportunities that we are looking forward to embrace and leverage to grow with you.

Here’s wishing you a very Happy Christmas and an exciting New Year 2020.

Best Regards,
Leena
Director
