Nasscom expands its launchpad program to Alberta
Invest Alberta and the National Association of Software and Service Companies (nasscom) have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to promote innovation, investment, and technological exchange between Alberta and India.
Operating for nearly 35 years, nasscom is a not-for-profit industry association for the $227-billion IT business process management industry in India. With more than 3000 members constituting 90 per cent of the industry’s revenue, nasscom focuses on creating favourable business environments, boosting intellectual capital, and strengthening its talent pool.
The MOU will enhance each parties’ global competitiveness through collaborative, mutually beneficial research and development.
Invest Alberta worked with MacEwan University to facilitate 180 days of complementary office space for nasscom members looking to permanently establish themselves in the province. This benefit will help member companies decrease start-up costs and boost their profile. Invest Alberta will also assist with site selection, matching opportunities, introductions, and help with navigating government programs.
nasscom will promote Alberta as a strong tech hub with skilled talent by facilitating webinars, discussions, and conversations between Alberta and its 3000 members.
The MOU aligns with nasscom’s ongoing collaboration with the Government of Canada to further cross-national relationships and promote technology-based investment between the two countries.
