Simply amazed by the quality and scale of start-up companies being launched in India in the last few years, top Silicon Valley experts have said that next decade is going to be "golden era" of Indian entrepreneurship.

 

"Culmination of cloud, internet bandwidth, big data and mobility, I think has spawned the golden age for India," M R Rangaswami, one of the most influential technology executives, said.

Rangaswami said a lot of technologies are lined up for the Indian success in the coming years. He referred to the IT talent emerging out of India indicates in such a direction where in hundreds of Indian companies are expected to go big, issue public issues and even acquired by top global IT firms.
