Amit Srivastav discusses how India-based companies can scale to be global disruptors
New Delhi, February 17th, 2016 – Amit Srivastav, President of Technology Solutions at Infinite Computer Solutions, highlighted the potential of Indian entrepreneurship while speaking at the annual One Global Conference last week in New Delhi at The Imperial Hotel.
Amit was tapped to join a panel asking the question, “Can Indian Entrepreneurs Scale up to be Global Disruptors?”, moderated by Archana Jahagirdar, COO, Indian Angel Partners. Additional speakers on the panel included Ashok Trivedi, Managing Partner, SWAT Capital, Aashish Kalra, Chairman, Cambridge Technology Inc. and Vikram Chachra, CEO and MD, Eight Capital LLC. Amit discussed the different mindsets inhabited by entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley compared to India.
“India would benefit from adopting the Silicon Valley egalitarian attitude towards innovation where there is a focus on innovation utilizing an engineering mindset. The desire for introducing new ideas has to be stronger than the fear of failure. It is not an overnight fix, but rather a shift in attitude. Think outside the box, take risks and don’t settle for the middle of the road.” said Amit Srivastav. “India has so many opportunities within the country that small changes can have a huge impact. A local disruption in India will have a global impact due to the sheer size of the Indian marketplace.” headded.
As a company, Infinite is not new to the entrepreneurship scene in India. They have been involved with The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) for over 20 years – a non-profit network of entrepreneurs who help foster entrepreneurship among young entrepreneurs in the area through education, mentorship, networking and curriculum.
