The Technopark Technology Business Incubator (T-TBI), India’s largest IT Incubator, has joined hands with D2E Consulting—an offshore-outsourcing consulting company formed by global IT veterans—to leverage its rich customer base.
Arup Gupta (former TCS USA president), Hugo Yepez (former VP Johnson & Johnson & AmEx), and Subrata Dutta (former VP, GE & PWC) are the driving forces behind D2E.
T-TBI and D2E Consulting refer to their program as the India Market Access Corridor. The aim of the program is to facilitate partnerships between US Tech companies and Indian Tech startups and SMEs in Technopark Trivandrum.
D2E and T-TBI will facilitate these company partnerships with synergistic technology/solution offerings to develop joint business solutions. Initially, US Tech companies will have the opportunity to offer these solutions to Indian enterprise-class customers. Over time, the Indian Tech companies will have the opportunity to offer these solutions to US enterprise-class customers.
P. H. Kurian, IAS (IT Secretary, Government of Kerala and Chairman of T-TBI) says: “The proposed US-India corridor will be a significant step in the direction of enabling both – the entrepreneurial and mature ventures in India as well as in US in addressing the technology needs of, and being of value to, the enterprise customers in both the countries”.
“Indian Enterprise Customers today are looking for business solutions that will put them on par with their global peers and competitors. These joint business solutions, combined with program governance by D2E Consulting will be a right step in that direction,” said Arup Gupta, Chairman and CEO, D2E Consulting.
