||Challenges faced by innovators in India
||How i2india can help
||Innovation transfer across geographies
||I2india partners with global innovators to help them de-risk the entire process of introducing new technologies/products to tap India’s vast but fragmented and challenging market space.
||Pro-active diligence to identify India’s greatest challenges in the fields of climate change, engineering and healthcare.
||Joint Ventures with local presence
||i2india will create, fund and staff a new venture in India and incubate it during its early stages. We support the venture through market penetration and follow-on fund-raise. Our presence in Europe/UK ensures broadband information updates and reduced risk of geography.
||Efficient marketing & distribution strategy
||This is one of the biggest challenges in India as efficient 3rd party channels are often not available. In most cases, this aspect requires significant business innovation. I2india has developed a network of partners who provide cost-efficient and broad-base distribution for new products.
||Prototyping / field-testing
||We run an innovation center and partners with various test labs in metro and rural settings.
||We conduct primary end-user research to right-size product features/pricing. We have local product design and development partners.
||We have relationships with small, independent as well as large industry partners such as Thermax, Tatas, Ranbaxy, GVK Bio, Merck etc.
||Leadership team recruitment
||Finding and mentoring the leadership team is half the execution risks. We have built a network of EiRs in India as well as Indian and UK mentors to enable strong execution.
||Ideas for new blockbusters in relatively un-addressed market segments.
