The Odisha government has signed an agreement with the TiE Silicon Valley as part of its efforts to develop the state as an IT hub and attract US investment.
Under the agreement, the Odisha government would have a professional stationed at Tie Silicon Valley headquarters in Santa Clara, California, thus making it the first Indian State to do so.
The TiE is a non-profit network of entrepreneurs and professionals.
“We intend to hire a business development person who will spend his time promoting Odisha as an investment destination,” said Venktesh Shukla, President of TiE Silicon Valley.
The MoU was signed by a senior delegation from Odisha that included Vishal K Dev, the Odisha Industries Secretary, and G Mathi Vathanan, Chairman-cum-Managing Director of Industrial Promotion and Investment Corporation of Odisha Limited.
