AcceleratorIndia and Sanshadow Consultants (Pvt) Ltd. Announce UK-India Strategic Partnership

Europe’s premier global business builder for Indian innovations has partnered with India’s leading Intellectual Property (IP) consulting, strategy and audit firm, to offer innovative Indian companies fast track access to global markets.

New Delhi, India – 19th Jan 2009: AcceleratorIndia, based in Cambridge, UK and Sanshadow Consultants (Pvt) Ltd., based in Delhi, India have today announced a strategic alliance that will result in the first of its kind offering in India, bringing together Sanshadow’s IP expertise with AcceleratorIndia’s expertise, experience, global networks and relationships. Under this agreement, AcceleratorIndia and Sanshadow will work together on a select portfolio of Indian innovations with strong and defensible IP and international market potential to build global businesses.

Sanjay Raizada, Promoter Director, Sanshadow Consultants Pvt. Ltd says “India has always had a lot of Technology potential and it is coming of age now with the industrial progress seen in the recent times. To realise its full potential, management & technology synergies need to meet commercial opportunity, which is what this relationship is trying to achieve”.

AcceleratorIndia, based in Cambridge, UK, aims to bring to India the expertise and relationships from 30 years of Cambridge experience of building successful technology businesses that have become global leaders. AcceleratorIndia helps innovative Indian companies build global businesses in the Technology, Media and Telecoms (TMT) space by offering its Expertise, Experience and Access to Markets in a collaborative model that shares the risks and rewards.

“Indian companies have a unique opportunity to develop innovation-based businesses and move away from the provision of cost arbitraged services, as global competition intensifies” according to Dr. Uday Phadke, founder-Director of AI who has been an active player in the Cambridge eco-system for the last 30 years.  “The quality of Indian innovation needs to be matched with in-depth access to specialist expertise, deep experience, key relationships and international markets.  AI can draw upon the Cambridge experience to do this with speed and agility”.

The alliance is part of AcceleratorIndia’s global strategy of establishing partnerships with best in class companies and service providers who complement its core proposition of building innovative global businesses. Sanshadow Consultants (Pvt) Ltd. is India’s premier IP consulting firm with a strong expertise in IP strategy and backed by an exceptional team of founders and advisors.

The alliance between Sanshadow and AcceleratorIndia is all about finding opportunities for innovative companies and technologies from India. The aim is to help build businesses, based on the deep expertise and experience of serial entrepreneurs, senior industry leaders and global managers.
