We are in for a special meet on coming Sunday.

We will be meeting, interacting and co-learning with 25 students of the Hogeschool Utrecht (www.hu.nl), University of Applied Sciences who are all following the minor program Innovasia (www.innovasia.nl).

The goal of Innovasia is to bridge the gap between the European and Asian cultures in the field of technical innovations. Most of our visitors are technical folks especially from Media Technology and Integrated Product Development.

We will be interacting with them on the following threads:

Getting to understand their profile quickly
Give them a bird eye view of Indian Startups & Entrepreneurship Ecosystem
A bit on Bangalore
Doing business between Europe & India: Cultural Aspects
Outsourcing & off-shoring from a practical point of view
Technical Innovations
Intellectual property

Though the discussion will be free flowing, but we will try to keep it focused, non-academic and with a tab on the watch. Idea is to share more of case studies, examples, personal experiences so that there is more tangible learning and something we all can go back and use.

I encourage OCC startups especially product based and / or from Media Technology to come and interact with Dutch students. Also some of these students can help you point in the right direction (give you some sense) if you are looking to Netherlands as one of your potential geographies.
