Where India took over China in Q2 FY19 to become Asia’s top fintech investment hub, at least as far as volume was concerned, the two remain the most extensive global markets vis-a-vis fintech adoption with 87% adoption rate. At the same time, Alibaba has put a pause on investments in India till it finds a compelling avenue after the disappointment it faced in the e-commerce and other segments in the country.
This is happening just as the face of Indian e-commerce shifts from the traditional models to the social and live commerce models with contenders like Meesho, GlowRoad, Bulbul Shop, SimSim are beginning to push this new-age e-commerce inspired by the success of these models in China.
And then there are ByteDance’s platforms like TikTok and Helo, that are spreading in the Indian market faster than anyone ever imagined. The heightened interest of Chinese investors in the Indian Internet space as an opportunity in the local ecosystem seems to be dried up.
So many curious cases, right? Is scaling up these new-age businesses in India easy? Given how vastly diverse the expanse of India is? And what is the scope for opportunities in India for the two countries? How does the future of cross border investment between these two countries look like?
Where does India stand against China when the question is about the availability and the quality of the Internet infrastructure? And despite this influence, how does the Indian and Chinese Jugaad differ?
And it’s not always easy to get access to answers, dialogues, insights, and first-hand experience of the ecosystems for entrepreneurship – founders, investors, employees and other stakeholders. Be it the lack of easy channels of communication, time or money. And Entrackr understands that.
That is why Entrackr brings you the perfect combination of a Unicorn Trip 2.1 and a Chindia TMT Dialogue 2019 conference together in November.
