Investors are ready to plow up to $20 million into joint startup projects between India and Russia, Skolkovo vice president Igor Bogachev told the TASS news agency Friday.
“At Skolkovo alone we have 70 registered venture funds that want to invest in [Russian-Indian] innovation projects,” Bogachev was quoted as saying. “We could be talking about investment from $10 million to $20 million by the end of the current year.”
Bogachev, the executive director of Skolkovo’s IT cluster, was speaking on day two of the IndiaSoft industry conference in New Delhi, where 15 Skolkovo startups exhibited their innovations.
