Where to start
When starting a business in India, India’s great thinker Rabindranath Tagore might be your inspiration: “You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.” A powerful statement that could not be further from the truth. Fortunately, DBi offers you the support you need when it comes to crossing that sea to the beautiful country of India, a country that has a huge potential and is full of opportunities.
Being one of the most diverse countries in the world geographically, India offers several business entries. Mumbai is known to be the financial capital, but also the region of Delhi is a powerful business environment. If you prefer doing business in the south, the area around Chennai is a great choice. A major advantage is that wherever you plan to operate, practically every person speaks English.
