Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to the Silicon Valley has become a hot topic of discussion this month. His impending visit to the Silicon Valley, his scheduled meetings with the big bosses of Apple and Facebook, and his visits to Adobe, Google, and Tesla offices are specially garnering a lot of attention from the Indian startup sector.
Everyone has the same question in mind,
Will this visit actually change anything for the Indian startup ecosystem or will be just another one of his many foreign business trips?
Starting today, we guess the answers will become clearer about the writing on the wall.
One of the highlights of his trip is visit to Facebook’s office and interact with CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg. The two will discuss “how communities can work together to address social and economic challenges,” Zuckerberg said in a post on Facebook on September 12. Zuckerberg also invited questions for the event which will be held on Sunday, September 27 at 9:30 am pacific time.
Interestingly, many questions posted to Zuckerberg centre on, “If Facebook can open an office in India and promote more jobs to censorship to slow internet speeds in India to lodging grievances about the reservation system in India.” Many have also posted questions about, “How Facebook can collaborate with the government to address grievances about government organizations, caste agendas, the ‘Startup India, Standup India’ slogan and entrepreneurial opportunities.” The next few days hold the answer to these questions on the mind of Indian people.
