REDI to visit India
Coming up in in the first week of April, REDI (Regional Economic Development Initiative) Cincinnati , formally the Cincinnati USA Partnership for Economic Development, and a delegation of partners will travel to India as part of its international attraction strategy. Adam Singer heads up the Indian attraction strategy in addition to being the BioHealth cluster director for economic development organization.
REDI Cincinnati will participate in the first annual InTech50 conference taking place in Bangalore. InTech50 is a showcase of some of the most promising software products created by entrepreneurs from India. A panel of chief information officers (CIOs), venture capitalists, and product leaders from previous startup successes will decide the 50 companies that make the cut to InTech50. Those chosen companies will receive advice, ongoing mentoring, product marketing support, and funding to scale their offerings to global markets. CIOs from some of the world's most reputable brands will be in attendance, with representation from Fortune 500 companies (some of whom already call Cincinnati home), such as Procter & Gamble, Kroger, Great American, Citi, EMC, SAP, and Microsoft.
Cincinnati USA already serves as the North American or U.S. headquarters of many highly successful Indian technology companies, including Tata Consulting, Axiom Consulting, SLK Software Group, and Vora Technologies Group. In fact, prior to the InTech50 conference while in India, REDI Cincinnati will meet with other Indian companies to continue dialogue about opening markets for them in the U.S. through a presence in Cincinnati.
