Zone Startups has launched Gateway 91, a soft landing program to work with international startups and growth stage companies looking to access the Indian market.
Canadian minister of innovation, science and economic development Navdeep Bains announced the creation of the new soft landing program for international companies looking to expand in India.
He said, “All around the world, confident, ambitious countries are investing in their own future. Formidable energies have led to Zone Startups India partnership among Ryerson, Simon Fraser University and the Bombay Stock Exchange, and the Government of Canada is proud to support this program. This work in the emerging field of financial technology has the potential to turn ideas into marketable solutions.”
Matt Saunders, president of Zone Startups, said: “Through programs like Gateway91, Zone Startups will continue to assist early stage enterprise software companies as they look to scale in the Indian market. Our extensive connections and programming continue to attract great founders developing innovative solutions. We’re proud to partner with both the federal and Ontario governments to give Canadian FinTech startups the opportunity to benefit from our leading services to grow and thrive in India.”
The first set of companies expected to be a part of Gateway91 will be selected through a competitive program in Canada and will be announced in early 2017.
