  2. Build: A 6-week long India market accelerator designed to further B2B/B2G linkages and unlock business opportunities in-market. Get hands-on support to discover opportunities, build potential POCs, gain contract opportunities and forge partnerships, with a 1-week market trip to India.

  3. Grow: An intensive customised 3-month programme (with the option to extend) for companies with market readiness, clarity of an entry plan, and availability of funds. Customise your market readiness with personalised business leads, local product development and an immersive in-market trip to India, ensuring a strategic and effective expansion.
