How real is innovation in India?

Indian innovation and its impact on developed nations is a topic of increasing relevance in today’s world. The accelerating pace of innovation across Indian-based startups, corporate houses and MNCs is bound to have an impact on developed nations such as Germany, where high-tech exports employ almost a third of the country’s workforce. We would like to highlight our recent study, carried out by the international consulting firm Roland Berger, illustrating the landscape of innovation in India and offering recommendations for establishing meaningful cooperation between Germany and India.

The study highlights multiple initiatives which have been undertaken by firms, academia, and the government to overcome the challenges present in the Indian innovation ecosystem but acknowledges that these will take some time to bear fruit. In the meantime, focus on diligent execution and scale-up of domestic and international best practices is critical.
