It was an honour for us to be a part of Incubator’s Connect 2023 in Germany, organised by DWIH New Delhi
The Senior Manager of Incubation & Portfolio Management, Soujit Das, represented IIMCIP alongside various representatives of Indian and German incubator cells at the week-long program on Incubation and Internationalisation in Germany, from June 4 – 9, 2023.
Held onsite at three locations viz., Karlsruhe, Braunschweig and Berlin, the program covered institutional visits, workshops and meetings with policymakers and relevant institutions towards deliberating on ways to internationalise incubators and furthering the international cooperation between India and Germany.
The workshops constituted a major component of the program, bringing together around 30 incubators, technology transfer offices (TTO) and institutions active in the field of entrepreneurship from India and Germany. Variegated discourses on institutional frameworks, funding mechanisms, collaboration in innovation networks and challenges in international collaboration were the highlights of the workshops.
As Soujit brings back an enriching experience and comprehensive insights into the dynamic startup ecosystem in Germany, we, at IIMCIP, look forward to building on his visit to explore impact-driven opportunities and collaboration possibilities in the coming days.
