GOInternational Finland, a Nordic International Accelerator will be hosting Smart City Bizhack India at its headquarters in Helsinki. It is the first Indian-themed event to be hosted alongside Slush, an international technology conference organised annually for startups and tech talent to meet top-tier international investors, executives and media at Helsinki, Finland.
The three-day event aims to explore the untapped opportunities in the Indian market for smart city innovation. At present, every minute, approximately three Indians are migrating from rural India to urban spaces and this pace is set to continue, thus creating incredible challenges and opportunities for one of the world’s largest economies. The initiative is in line with PM Narendra Modi’s $15 Bn Smart Cities programme to build a new India.
Chhattisgarh State will be announced as the pilot state and gateway state for Finnish Innovation in India at the Slush Event. A seven-member delegation from the State of Chhattisgarh, led by Dr. Kamal Preet Singh, Secretary Commerce & Industry, will be joining the event and laying out the broad contours of the potential opportunities in Chhattisgarh for Finnish Innovation. This will also include the opportunity to co-create and collaborate with Indian partners.
