The DMIC Project & Mumbai – Global Tech Hubs

As a country with immense potential in terms of resources and innovation, India is quickly establishing itself as a global emerging tech market. While Bangalore is currently the country’s largest tech hub, other cities are quickly catching up. Mumbai, once known as Bombay, is one of those cities, currently boasting the third biggest startup ecosystem in India.

Over the last few weeks we have been discussing known hubs such as Bangalore and Delhi, and emerging ones such as Pune. As one of the world’s largest cities, Mumbai is often strangely when discussing global tech hubs. More exciting that even Mumbai is the DMIC project, whose success is likely to reshape the entire planet’s tech scene. Read on, and you’ll quickly realize why this is not just hyperbole.

HR Advice: Controversial, or Wise Hires?

HR, and considering who to hire is not likely to be high on people’s list of to-do’s when they start a company. But, there’s a certain path that most technology startups seem to follow. An individual sees an opportunity, and ideally it’s an opportunity for innovation. They get excited about it, and recruit friends / associates to build and test the solution. This usually adds up to a team of 4-6 people. That’s the typical startup group of co-founders. A visionary, who may or may not have developer skills, and a few developer friends who make the idea come to life.

Know a company like that? We all do!
