Indian Government signs tech contract with Greater Manchester
Greater Manchester has signed a 3-year contract with the Indian government to support 5 high growth technology companies.
It’s the only UK region outside of London to sign such a deal with the Electronics and Computer Software Export Promotion Council (ESC),
“I am sure, with its strong industrial base and increasing emphasis on digitisation, Manchester will prove to be the perfect pitch for bringing together IT SMEs from both the countries,” said Sandeep Narula, chairman of the ESC.
The partnership will be managed by HOST at Media City, with a dedicated team working with the 5 companies as they expand in the region.
The companies are Terrah Technologies, NeoSOFT Technologies, Prospecta Technologies, GoodBits Tech and SIERRA ODC.
“It is an honour to be chosen by the Indian government to have five of India’s best, high growth, tech companies based at HOST and supported by our innovation ecosystem to create inward investment, jobs and economic growth opportunities for the region,” added Mo Isap, CEO of IN4 Group, operator of HOST.
“This incredible collaboration with the Manchester India Partnership and MIDAS marks the start of our international footprint and will hopefully further strengthen the relationship between the two nations.”
