Startup Bridge India was born of a collaboration between TiE Silicon Valley and iSPIRT, and led by Raju Reddy, Manu Rekhi, Rajan Maruthavanan, BV Jagadeesh, Sharad Sharma, Venk Shukla, Anjini Kochar, and Dipty Desai.

After two successful one-day conferences at Stanford, our cofounders realized that Startup Bridge India should be a standalone entity fully dedicated to its mission. In September 2018 we became a 501(c)(c) nonprofit.
