US-based Indian VC sets up "Startup Corridor" for young Indian entrepreneurs

Young entrepreneurs in India can now visit and connect with likeminded entrepreneurs, mentors and seed investors in Silicon Valley, US, with the creation of a "Startup Corridor" between the two countries.

    Young entrepreneurs in India can now visit and connect with likeminded entrepreneurs, mentors and seed investors in Silicon Valley, US, with the creation of a "Startup Corridor" between the two countries.

The 'Corridor' is the brain child of Silicon Valley venture capitalist Asha Jadeja Motwani, widow of late Stanford Professor Rajeev Motwani, who was a mentor to the likes of Larry Page and Sergey Brin, and key architect of the algorithms that power Google today.

Asha is an investor in over 75 start-ups in Silicon Valley and has just begun seed investing in Indian start-ups.

As part of the fellowship, selected entrepreneurs are invited for an intense two-week plunge into the heart of Silicon Valley.

The entrepreneurs for the first round of this fellowship included Sanjay Vijayakumar, Chairman, Startup Village; and three others from Kerala -- Sijo Kuruvilla George (CEO, Startup Village and Co-Founder, MobME), Deepak Ravindran (Founder and CEO, Innoz Technologies Pvt. Ltd.), and Mohammed Hisamuddin (Co-Founder and CIO, Innoz).

The Startup Corridor will also provide a momentum to the Kerala government's SV Square' (Startup Village to Silicon Valley) initiative, under which five Kerala students/entrepreneurs selected by Startup Village will be sent for a stint at Silicon Valley in May-June.
