On March 6th, 2018, Daniel Rosenblum visited Nexus to understand the innovative approach of Nexus for supporting Indian startups. Nexus brings the best U.S. practices of innovation, technology and entrepreneurship to the Indian startup community.

Mr. Rosenblum also interacted with Nexus-supported startups to understand how the Nexus model works and what additional steps can be taken to increase its impact in India. Nexus startups like Morphedo, Clensta, WeCP and Saral Designs participated in the lively interaction.

He was particularly impressed by the growth of the startups after going through the 10 week long pre-incubation program. Nexus will continue to support Indian startups and organize more of these interactions to facilitate the growth of the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
