In the past two decades, India has grown to be one of the top countries contributing to the global IT industry. The youth who migrated to these large IT hubs have been a vital driver of this growth.
But this, for the longest time, has been the most uneven form of growth.
In this edition of Founder Thesis, Akshay Datt speaks with Gireendra Kasmalkar, Founder and CMD, Ideas To Impacts Innovations Pvt. Ltd., who is on a mission to ‘Distribute The Future Evenly’. He is also the Lead Investor and Managing Partner at Pentathlon Ventures, a Pune-based VC fund.
Much before COVID struck and companies realized that employees could work from smaller cities and remote locations, Gireendra started Ideas to Impacts (I2I) in 2015 to offer cutting-edge tech services from smaller towns in India. And today, this ‘small-town’ model is proving to be the next step in Indian offshoring.
On the VC front, with Pentathlon Ventures, Gireendra has funded and supported numerous early-stage B2B Tech start-ups.
Tune in to this episode to hear Gireendra speak about how I2I is empowering small-town talent to participate and contribute to the global tech economy.
