In this episode, we catch up with the founding members of Startup Goa as they celebrate 9 years of cultivating connections within the tech community of Goa. A grassroots initiative designed to sprout tech companies from Goan soil, Startup Goa is a platform that connects founders, tech talent and investors through a free job board and newsletters as well as in person & online tech meetups.
In conversation with Luke Sequeira, and additional insight from co-founders Caslino Pereira & Aprup Shet, we explore the story behind the platform, discuss the overall evolution of the tech in Goa and find out just where they see this community going in the years head. Founded in November 2011, the team kicked off their anniversary month with a 2 day hackathon that saw more than 50 local volunteers come together to celebrate all of their achievements thus far and to collectively bring the platform into the next decades to come.
For more information, do check out their website: StartupGoa.org where you will find a ton of resources no matter whether you're new to tech or a seasoned entrepreneur, an investor or a digital nomad in search of a new place to call home.
