This ‘techade’ belongs to India. After dominating the global IT services sector for a while now, the tech industry in India will evolve and hold a commanding position in the products space as well, in the future. Indian ‘techpreneurs’ are already building robust products that offer innovative solutions to address challenges which affect consumers across the world.
The use case of self-expression in native languages, for example, is not just an India-centric challenge, but a global one,confronting internet users from non-English speaking nations in Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East and Latin America. What we’ve built here in India can be very easily taken to internet users anywhere in the world, who yearn to express themselves on social media in their mother tongue. Like Koo, several other products and platforms will continue to emerge out of India, addressing common problems and growing to dominate the tech space globally. With a large pool of talent and an ambition to scale globally, entrepreneurs will help India to transform from a service provider to a product creator. Technology will be made in India, for Indians and for the world.
