Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA) recently concluded the latest chapter of their successful Virtual Visit to India Series. COVID19 has made compes rethink their strategies and activities.

FCEDA pivoted by moving their in-person events online, using them to inform compes interested in US expansion how they can continue their efforts during pandemic imposed restrictions. After the resounding success of similar sessions in Kolkata, Chandigarh, Bhubaneswar, and Delhi NCR, the latest virtual destination was leading tech innovation center - Pune.

A number of emerging technology compes attended on Thursday, April 22, 2021, to participate in the exclusive session of FCEDA's Virtual Visit to Pune, with the theme "Grow Your Tech Business in Fairfax County, USA". Over the year, despite the Covid19 pandemic, the 5 Virtual Visits were attended by more than 100 decision makers of innovative technology orgzations across India, that are making their U.S. investment decisions.

Harold Brayman, Foreign Commercial Officer at US Department of Commerce, Mumbai, delivered opening remarks, followed by a panel discussion on "The Importance of Ecosystem for Business Success". Featured panelists were Madhu Onteeru, Head North America BPS Delivery at TCS, Anshu Srivastav, Advisor and Mentor for Startups and senior charter member at TiE Pune and Shishir Lagu, U.S. Tax Partner at KNAV.

"Our goal was to raise awareness of Indian tech industry leaders about Northern Virginia and specifically Fairfax County, largely considered a tech hub of the Washington D.C. Metro area. Our region offers enormous opportunities for growth while FCEDA provides relevant support for market expansion of emerging technology orgzations." said panel moderator Juhi Naith, Assistant Director, International Business Investment, at FCEDA, who leads international investment from India into the county.

"Fairfax County in Northern Virginia is an ideal location for international business expansion, not only because of the prevalence of high tech, high growth compes and availability of skilled talent but also due to the exceptional quality of life," said Mr. Madhu Onteeru, Head North America BPS Delivery at Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)

FCEDA will conduct the final event in their Virtual Visit series in Bangalore - site of their India head office - on June 16, 2021, featuring their President and CEO, Victor Hoskins.
