    Hi folks,

    I am interested in the opportunities that might be available in India for Western entrepreneurs.  I am a few years off as it is but just wondering if any hubbers have experience working with internet applications, living and working in India.

    thanks for the reply.

    I don't get on here as much as I would like.  Study coming to end of semester....

    What would I like to know?

    Basically, what is it like trying to network with entrepreneurial westerners/locals.  Specifically, I want/need to work with other people, I want to produce internet applications but I don't know where to start. 

    I live in Australia and although I could be wrong, it doesn't really look like the place to get started.  Is there much of a community of business people either local or otherwise that are involved in this sort of thing?

    I have little knowledge of the "internet applications" field, and how much of an action is there in that area. Perhaps Pisean will come back and explain (Skyfire is another hubber who works in the IT field).

    But I can say that IT in general, and the other areas that you have mentioned in your profile - are where some very large and reputed Indian IT companies are very active in. The good news is - they are very large recruiters too - adding several thousands of graduating engineers every year!

    You can certainly try going to the sites of some of the leading IT companies - TCS, Infosys, WIPRO - to name a few. Even if you want to become an entrepreneur later, no harm in testing the waters first!

      thank you.

      I still need to finish my degree all the same.  I appreciate the ideas smile

      I will have a look at those companies.

      It is too expensive to live in Australia and I think it would be nice to go experience life elsewhere, particularly, choosing IT as a career, India sounds like a smart move.  We will see...

    Another important thing - India can be a big culture shock - especially for those from West/Australia. You wouldn't realize it much inside the offices/workplaces of IT companies, but outside - it is a whole different world.

    If you really plan to come to India for business/employment, I suggest you familiarize with India. Make friends with Indians - I guess you can find quite a few in Australia.

    I have met a number of Indians in Australia, including some studying IT.  Good friends of mine recently travelled through for about a year so I have heard the stories of the cultural differences.  A good suggestion though.  If I hadn't heard anything, it would definitely be a major shock.  All the same, it will be a shock, even with the second hand stories.
