India – A Goldmine for Human Capital

 

With over a 1.4 billion people, 117 billionaires, and CEO’s who lead the worlds largest companies, India is recognised as a country of exceptional human capital talent and from my recent experience I can understand why.

As we expand our operations globally I m having more and more interaction with Indian business Leaders, Heads of HR and those who lead technology firms. The level of entrepreneurism and ability is exceptional.

Pre Covid, India was the world’s fastest growing economy at around 7% per annum and was the third-largest start-up base in the world, according to a report rom IT trade association NASSCOM. That equates to more than 4,750 technology start-ups and about 1,500 in 2019 alone.

India does have its challenges, infrastructure and supply chain being the major areas of development, but with Telecommunication sectors booming India is the place to invest, in July this year, Google recently invested $4.5bn into Reliance’s Jio Platform.

Technology and AI will be a major area of growth for India over the next 5 years and Marlin will be a part of this. For opportunities in India and Asia please visit our website or contact us for a confidential conversation.
