Considered to be one of India’s most developed cities, Pune is making a name for itself as a go-to tech hub in the country. In recent years, the city has seen an exponential growth of its startup community and may be on its way to taking the country’s startup capital top spot.
Sanchit Vir Gogia, Chief Futurist, Founder and CEO of Greyhound Knowledge Group, also noted Pune’s potential to dominate as a startup capital, pointing out the city’s affordable cost of living, an increasing number of data centers, convenient transportation and travel options, and strong focus on research and education.
“Pune is an attractive prospect as it has a massive talent pool which is of good quality and it has fairly decent infrastructure. The Mumbai-Pune connectivity is also a strong factor that would attract startups,” Gogia explained to Tech2.com.
“Connectivity and internet access are things which startups thrive on and Pune can offer that,” Gogia continued.
