India is the most fertile ground for upcoming semiconductor technology startups – how true?


    India is ready today with the semiconductor ecosystem getting formed and the local markets reaching a critical size for a viable semiconductor industry.

    The industry-academia interface is weak but getting there; the venture funds are becoming to be available.

    Of course, there is a serious problem of “mindset”; the engineers are not willing to “take on the world” but wanting to know what they should do next

    The successful IT entrepreneurs are still not investing in start-ups.

As such there is a mixed picture, but the situation today is far ripe than what it was 20 years back, when companies like Infosys started!
