Sparks of Silicon Valley India Hub
We’re proud to showcase the “Sparks of India Hub,” a series of activities and events that demonstrate the success of our initiatives:
Menlo Park & Kochi Become Sister Cities
Mukul Agarwal, Founder & CEO of BootUP Ventures, has been committed to promoting entrepreneurship and innovation in India. As part of this mission, the company played a pivotal role in establishing a Sister City partnership between Menlo Park, California and Kochi, Kerala in 2015.
To initiate the partnership, BootUP Ventures engaged in a conversation with the Menlo Park Mayor and Chancellor. This was followed by a delegation from Menlo Park visiting India to meet with the chief ministers of Kochi and Kerala. These efforts culminated in the establishment of the Sister City partnership, which has since proven to be a valuable platform.
