Ready2Go – India meets European smart city technologies

EBTC and Ready2Go organised an international brokerage event between European and Indian smart technology companies on May 23rd and 24th, 2018. The matchmaking took place under the umbrella of the 2018 Smart Cities India Expo.

The European Commission and the European Agency for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (EASME) launched the pilot project “Ready2GO” aimed to support European SMEs to internationalize. Ready2GO project is developed by an international consortium led by Promos Milan in collaboration with the Enterprise Europe Network (EEN). Ready2GO is an innovative new programme in which selected SMEs will be provided with the necessary tools for guaranteed success abroad. Ready2GO’s array of resources and training grants businesses the opportunity to broaden their horizons, build up a network of foreign contacts and most importantly stand out in the global market.

In India, the Ready2Go project is co-organized by European Business and Technology Centre (EBTC) – the lead consortium partner of EEN.

18 European companies participated in a matchmaking event held on 23rd and 24th May 2018 in Pragati Maidan during the Smart Cities India Expo 2018. More than 250 meetings were organised by the Ready2Go/EBTC team. Targeted sectors were energy, environment, ICT and transport.
