Nuggets secures passage to India
Blockchain startup, Nuggets, has been selected to join the Access India Programme (AIP).
In partnership with the UK India Business Council, the High Commission of India in London launched the programme in 2017. It identifies high-potential UK SMEs using innovative technologies, and helps them establish themselves within the Indian economy. Selected companies receive a range of services, from mentorship to networking and market-entry support.
Seema Khinda Johnson, COO and Co-founder at Nuggets, a global payments and identity platform, says: "Having support like this from the Indian High Commission will help our expansion efforts immeasurably. We’re proud to have been selected for this programme. We’ve always believed in the power of our technology to empower consumers and boost economies. That’s especially true in such a vibrant, tech-focused environment as contemporary India.”
Manish Singh, Economic Minister with the High Commission of India in London, comments: “Nuggets is exactly the sort of product we look for: exceptionally innovative, delivered in a way that can empower an entire population.”
Nuggets also recently made inroads into China. Earlier this month, the UK Government and the Mayor of London announced the venture would lead the UK Tech Mission in the country. The venture also took part in the recent launch of Regulatory Sandbox for FinTech: UK-China Collaboration to Promote Financial Innovation.
