For years, as a second home, Silicon Valley has been home to some of India’s brightest minds, their technological talents and their world-changing ideas.

Sundar Pichai, Satya Nadella, Jayashree Ullal and Anjali Sud are among the growing list of Indian-born CEOs of global US corporate giants.

When it comes to startups, a recent Stanford study shows that 90 of the 500 unicorn founders in the United States were born in India.

Notably, in recent years, the chasm between the startup ecosystems in the United States and India has widened, with the Valley now serving as the launching pad for the rocket of Indian startups that are “building in India, for the world”.
